Big Fish

WooHoo!!  I finished my Big Fish rug.  This is the rug I mentioned a couple posts back...the one that was giving me a fit.  Once I gave into the rug it came with a bit more ease.  I still reversed hooked a couple places more than once, but I got her done. 

The inspiration for this pattern came from a reproduction bone box I own.  I changed it to meet my needs or should I say my wants.  The whale makes me smile.  I think it turned out pretty good for being hooked between 1:00 am  & 4:00 am.  My 13 yr old beagle, Miss Beezley, is afraid of thunder and we were hiding in the wool room so I hooked.  

I guess I'll dig out the sewing machine and zip zag the edges and start whipping it.  Tonight is looking like a good night for a movie and some whipping.

Here's an Irish blessing for you......

A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
