FISHING


"Fishing" by Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin



The minute that I saw this design I knew that I had to stitch it for my younger son. He spends a great deal of time fishing while at our house in Vermont. I purchased two pewter fish buttons that I will be placing in the space to the left and right of my son's initials.



The verse is great, it reads:

If fish would bite like this ~ We never

more would say ~ The biggest fish

I caught of course ~ Was the one that

got away ~ Artful Anglers measure up

Take A Boy Fishing Today

Now that I have pulled this out I think it is about time I get it framed! It has been tucked away for a while.

Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin is such a favorite of mine. I was sad to hear that she is retiring and will no longer be designing! Fortunately I have a handful of her patterns that I will someday stitch...you know, "If only I had more time" :D.


Until next time...

Very cute. I think Mary Garry has been retired for quite a while. If you are lucky enough to have some of her designs I'd hang on to them :-).

Drat! I can't view this picture or your WIPS pictures from here at work. I'll have to remember to look while on line at home. I'm sure it looks great.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

What a cute chart, I am sure you son will love it :D

I am glad to know I am not the only one who has fallen asleep stitching! I just couldn’t stay awake. So, do you like to quilt as well? Have you made any quilts you could show us? :)
