Well, pooh...we missed Father's Day!!

I know that I missed Father's Day, but, can't we just give that fishing man in our lives a gift  just because?  Here is a great small quilt that could have so many uses.
 
  
This quilt is called "Fishing Star", measuring 31x31.  I meander quilted it with black thread.  The stars are made from fishing fabric with brown, red, blue, green and off white swirly/spec fabrics.  It will make a great addition to some lucky fisherman's wall, or perhaps a table topper for a mountain cabin by the lake.
 
 
 
I brought two more projects home today.  One that needs the binding sewn down and then hemmed, and one that needs to be completed sandwich style!  Tomorrow is going to be a 'me' day, so I should be able to get them both done.  We shall see how that goes!
 
Don't forget to go by the Let's Get Acquainted - New Bloggers Blog Hop!!  hosted by Beth at Plum and June!!  You can also scroll over to the button on the right, and click on the Blog Hop button.  Below, please find the entire schedule.  I encourage you to visit each site at least once during this month and next, there are so many wonderful blogs to see!

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
