My final completed project of 2017 is the fish table runner that I made for my brother's birthday.
The wool fabrics are all the ones I recently washed and dried in anticipation of making some wool projects and this one was perfect.
I found the pattern in Terry Clothier Thompson's book Lewis & Clark: Quilts for the Journey.
Because my brother is a master fly-fisherman, I wanted to make something that he'd appreciate and was meaningful at the same time. So I included a piece of tan herringbone wool that once was our father's sport jacket. I think he'll like that :)
Here's the back with a fused fish label.
Mother Nature cooperated this year with a beautiful White Christmas!
view from the restaurant in Lake Placid where my daughter,
daughter-in-law, and grand-daughters took me to lunch for my birthday :)
The sled dogs were out on the lake.
I'll end with these pics of a Juvenile Coopers Hawk that I took from my dining room window.
Happy New Year to you all!
