Which meant that each little fish was a complete surprise. It was such fun watching them emerge, almost like it wasn't me holding the needle and taking the stitches. It's interesting that even with these little guys - each one is less than three inches long - they all went through an ugly duckling stage where I really wondered if they would 'turn out'.
I still need to trim the interfacing, sew on the backing and decide how exactly I want to hang them as pendants. Need to figure that out quickly, too, as at least two of them are supposed to go to their new homes tomorrow evening. But I thought I'd share them where they are right now, in this little in-between stage, with my slightly-less-than-stellar photos, because hey, I'm beading!
