So, yes. We know what you’re thinking. Those are fresh water fish.  Being sold at The Salty Needle!  We know that some of you love your fresh water fish as much as we love our salt water ones. And, I think we can all agree on the beauty of the birds and colors in this fabric. Stop by or call to get some of “Freshwater Wildlife” by Elizabeth’s studio. It’s $10.99 a yard, and promises to please any bird or fish lover out there.
