Just a little fishy...
I'm writing today while swatting mosquitoes, the first bloom of summer! Its quite OK, just so that I don't forget to "not swat them near my quilts!" Good forbid, I would forget in my focused attempt to get the little buggers. Hopefully not!
I make custom quilts for a living. So I can't risk that kind of messy accident. But when summer mossy's start buzzing, I start thinking of spring salmon and summer fishing. Here I am, with my rod in its holder I'm doing a bit of hand stitching on dresden plate fans.
These are two spring salmon going home to the freezer.
My husband's Christmas project of 2009/10. This is a close design to a sockeye salmon, its 26 ft. long and the fins are solid ice from the Bulkley River. It was painted with tempura paint, water soluble and hand painted by my husband.
I usually take a book with me when my hubby insists that I go fishing with him. I've never worked on a quilt block by the water. That might send him a different message! Those fish look like they'll be pretty yummy!ReplyDelete
Yummy for sure, spring salmon is king in taste and size. So we fish quite a bit in the summer mostly. What do you fish for in species?ReplyDelete
Well, its a bit puzzling for some who also fish on the same bar, to see me sitting and stitching. But I've been doing it for so long that its all about organization. I purchased a photographer back pack so its got lot of compartments and away I go.ReplyDelete
