SAL 10- Double bubble

Sew…… over the last 3 weeks I have made some progress – but have not actually got any further! I can see that you maybe a little puzzled. Many kits that I have tried often supply enough treads, beads, wires etc. to make more than 1 of the finished project. So I decided to make a second fish! This is what I had completed last time…

And this is the second fish – just need to find a bead from somewhere for his eye. It is funny that, even with the same resources, both fish look quite different.

I hope to get a lot more sewing done now that the weather is getting brighter and the days longer. A walk around RHS Wisley garden this week saw many signs of spring this week. All the bulbs were out as well as the Daphne, Edgeworthia and Hamamelis – it smelt as good as it looked!

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

    I love watching this, though I’m too chicken to try it myself! Those fish look so real!

  3. My jaw drops when I see this kind of stitching. Fabulous!

  4. Jocelyn Thurston says:

    Well they are doubled in number so good progress indeed. Such lovely stitches too. I’m happy to hear your weather is turning as we are still in winter for now. Fingers crossed soon I will be reporting warmer temps too!

    Those little fishies are so cute! And I think it’s perfect that there’s some slight variation between them. The flowers were lovely. Thanks for sharing! I’m so ready for spring!

    I love that your fishes are multiplying! It’s so smart to use up the supplies rather than add them to your stash. We went for a walk in the park this morning and saw lots of budding leaves and daffodils and our first robins of spring!

  7. Your fishes are so beautiful and I’m glad there was enough to make two, I think one would have been a lonely soul. I’ve never attempted anything like this but your work is gorgeous. Jenny x

  8. Love the little fish! So cute!

    The garden is stunning, and so peaceful and cheerful. 🙂 Thank you for sharing, loved it tremendously.

  13. You’ll have an entire shoal of fish at this rate!

  14. Renee says:

    Your fish are fabulous! I look forward to seeing how they progress. 🙂

  15. I have always admired stump work, but I am too old to learn now and I have too much stash to start investing in even more. Yours is beautiful.

    I rather like the look of your second fish. It’s going to be fun to see these completed!

  17. Catherine says:

    I love your fish and I think it’s a great idea to make more if the supplies allow. Then you can choose your favourite!

  18. lbick says:

    Your fish are super cute.

  19. JJ Crafts says:

    And why not make two when they are such gorgeous little fish! And I love that they look a little different. Almost as if they are real goldfish!
