Something Fishy: A 12 x 12 Challenge

Something Fishy.
That phrase formed the basis of a challenge for the members of Women Against the Grain, an art quilting group of which I'm a member.  The object of the challenge:  to come up with a fiber art representation of the words Something Fishy, using a 12  x 12 format.
We got the challenge in November.
We had two months to rise to the occasion.
This evening, January 23, 2012, we revealed our responses.  What a lively display!  Here are a few of our images:
Sandi Schrader being nibbled by a trigger fish

Carol Vinick's representation of the maritime life of an island off the coast of Ireland

Linda Walter experimenting with paintsticks

Betty Warner's take on goldfish and buried treasure

Judy Ross's line drawing
Sandy Morawski's undersea scene

And here's my own response:  a seafood cookbook.

I dedicated it to the members of Women Against the Grain

I included 10 of my favorite seafood recipes.  This one's blurry, but it's a recipe for Greek salad with tuna, from Gourmet.  This is one of my go-to recipes for hot weather.  Let me know if you want a non-blurry copy and I'll share it with you.
Scallops with prawns on brochette from the Ark Cookbook, a gift from our friend Faith, who lives in Seattle.  This is our favorite recipe for shellfish on the grill.
Swordfish brochettes, from Anissa Helou's Mediterrranean Street Food.  This is our favorite recipe for fin fish on the grill

The next 12 x 12 challenge, due at the end of March:  Race.  It can be a noun or a verb, but it has to be 12 x 12.  And the challenge is on!
