Substitute for veiltail

This veiltail goldfish species was in my possession once..... just 2 of them, and proudly placed them at one corner of my sewing area in a big glass bowl. Love them dearly, I saw them grew each day and dancing merrily in the crystal clear water ....... just as they watched me, sewing.....!

Before my Pilgrimage years ago I let my niece had them....and when I came home later...... what left was an empty bowl collecting dust. I did not ask how and why???????

Recently I collected, cleaned and filled the poor bowl again........bit by bit from stash, few pieces at a time and finally it is full now to the brim..........with no fish, but lots of PINCUSHIONS........!

Then an apple green cover was introduced as companion and protection against dust.

And finally I am happy now, with my new found 'gold' stash!

Kak Dee.i am sure that the goldfish is now resting in peace knowing that the bowl which SHE once upon a time dance merrily into has been filled up with adorable pin-cushions made with lots of love in memory of HER..the goldfish!
