Brian's Christmas Present

I have been working hard the week before Christmas getting my son's gift ready to place under the tree. He lives in a home across from the river and loves to fish. So, I made him a bulletin board to hang pictures of all his buddies with their catches on. I also made him these fish to hang above it from a pattern by Melanie Hurlston (Melly & Me). When he gets it hung up, I will post a picture. If you are interested in her patterns (she has some really cute ones, you can visit Melanie at her blog

Come back soon for my first after Christmas giveaway!
