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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
