Fishing for a Background

I finally found the right water for my tropical fish. I have had so much fun fussy cutting fabric to make underwater tropical plants. I have it sandwiched and am now quilting which is fun, but tedious. I took two photos because it was on the table and I didn’t have a chair to stand on to photograph the full length.

I love my Monday’s in the studio. I get one every other week because I work at SDA on the other Mondays. Because of that, I don’t have stuff to do on Mondays. Today, however, I was the official photographer for Vacation Bible School. I took photos of 52 kids and printed them out. They will get them in a frame on the last day. They were all so darn cute – it was lots of fun.

Tomorrow is Pointless Sisters. Debra is coming up. I am taking in some screens and textile paints and we will have some fun screen printing in the afternoon.

    Hello fellow fisherman,

    Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

    Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during “prime time”; fish feeding hours?

    Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

    Don’t believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen’s story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : “Evening Secrets plus more”

    I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

    You will be one of the first to try it out.

    Gone Fishin’,
