Patchwork Fish

A patchwork fish design....

I have been enjoying my days off and today I watched the Melbourne Cup .  It is such an important race day for most Australians, we reckon it should be a public holiday!  A French horse "Dunaden" won today by a whisker!

Interesting fact: Did you know that Australian racehorses receive chiropractic care, because it makes them run faster? 


  1. I didn't know that Patti! I didn't even know that Australians liked horse racing until you mentioned going to the races before.

    I love your fish--gorgeous as always! xoO

  2. I can so see this fish in a fabric quilt!

    No, I did not know that about race horses. I do remember my father taking us to the races once when we were visiting Los Angeles, CA. I was ten. I do think MY horse won!

  3. this reminds me a bit of Paul Klee. just saw a movie about him in fact. no, didnt know that about the horses. i personally can't watch horse races as i feel so badly for the horses to have to do that for people's amusement. perform. ah well. be well, suki

  4. I watched the race too over here in the west... it is always v exciting to see who wins and what everyone is wearing!


please share a thought......
