This fantasy fish that is currently swimming in my sewing room is from Carolyn Pugh of New Zealand. She sent it to me in a swap. I wish you could see the metallic stitching on the fish. I know New Zealand is an exotic place but I think this fish is unique. You can see some of Carolyn's delightful dresses made for and modeled by her charming daughter on her blog here./

Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
