A few days ago the background was a darker blue. The piece was not working out so I thought that I needed to go lighter and pull one of my colours from the fish. It is a darker value and it works. I ran out of the colour and went to the Thrift store and found an old coat and a couple of  tshirts.That will work ,wish I could have found velour but oh well. It is so much fun to hook .....I plan on putting a red border  on the edge where the line is ......Anyway,I am happy with this now. I need to plan a new piece soon and finish off the  two I am working on.A sunny day again. love it...........I may venture out and buy myself a pair of smart socks......Had my friend , her mother and husband in for supper last evening.Boiled salmon ....yum. I call her my second mother since mom passed..she has been so good to me and was a wonderful friend of my mothers. Of course loved having Frankie the puppy visit.....and Noreen.......Next meal will be a lunch with the girls and my old spinach Quiche recipe.......Haven't made it for years..........
