finished wall hanging from 2003




ok, the top photo is obviously one of the label- the middle was an attempt of a close up to show my hand quilting..and the last, the bound finished look...it measures 30 1/4 by 23 inches...my door measures just under 30 inches...ok, if I leave the door open, but I close it whenever we leave the house - keeps our boxer, Zoe out of trouble in here. Anyway, it's the first ufo finish for me to kick off the year. I have been setting up to tackle my scrap bin next-wind bobbins etc all done. I grabbed some food to go at the grocery store as I finished shopping an hour ago-nice soup for M, veggie pasta for me. Now to sort out the bin down to the blocks in progress-and put the pedal to the metal. A little sunshine coming through the window-nice!

Congratulations Cher, it looks wonderful!! Love those spools of thread! What a great thing to use for the tread.
All in all could well be a favortie of mine. Keep those stitches running...glad you got some sewing time. Hugs, Finn

Too bad about the door, but its a very cute little wall hanging regardless. Like Finn I think the fabric used for the spools is a very creative and great idea. One I'll store away in the idea files

Cher: I love what you did with that. The spools are great and the black and white fabrics really set it off. Congratulations on finishing a UFO.
