SAL 14 – Fishy on a little dishy…

I have had quite a lot going on over the last few weekends so have not made as much progress as I would have liked. In fact I only sat down last night to work on the piece for the first time in three weeks! Nearly a happy dance, but not quite yet! I have finally gotten round to putting all the elements together for one of the fish. Here is what it looks like now…..


I don’t think that I have quite managed to get the right body shape – mine looks a little two round – probably because I have used too much stuffing. Here is the second little fish going in….

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....

  8. This is such a different unique piece. It’s simply ‘wow’ the fish fat or thin are amazing 🙂 Sharon

  9. Hi! It’s absolutely wonderful! How much patience! Very lovely..

    Pretty amazing work no matter what! I’ve lost track, will there be something between the two fishes or will they be applied to another piece of work eventually?

    I am so in awe of this…what a beautiful little creation. I just love him/her.

  12. So very delicate, I love the stitches and softness of the little fishy. 🙂

  13. I think your little fishy looks perfect and he maybe looks just a little too well cared for. Nature makes us in all shapes and sizes so I’m sure it does the same with the fishy population also.
