Coral Colour Inspiration and a Granny Square Fish

While walking around the fish store waiting for my husband to gather up his fish and supplies, I stared at the corals aquarium and the fish swimming around .. and saw a granny square.  Ok, ok, I’ve been seeing granny square projects everywhere, and thinking of working on them again, so maybe that’s why I’m seeing granny squares everywhere, even in an aquarium.

But this is what has decided that I will start a granny square project this year ….

See?  Even fish have granny square patterns on them.  LoL!

Which led me to a photo-taking spree with my phone camera.  Not just of the fish, of which there were plenty and colourful (and they’ll get their own post!)   But I got to thinking that if nature can mix up these colours together and it comes out as beautiful as these corals, then surely if we used these same colours in our projects then they would turn out as nice, no?

So here’s some coral inspiration, with a few fish swimming by.
(I apologize for the picture quality, as these were taken with a phone camera, inside a building, under aquarium lights and through glass and water.  Next time my husband drags me to fish stores, I’ll bring along the big camera so I can adjust the settings, and hopefully they don’t all look the same blue and green 🙂

Looks like a completed blanket …

… and some floral granny square inspirations here …

… and another one … 

Colourful, aren’t they?
