Wallhanging...........

Some time ago a friend gave me a flimsy that she had made and, for some strange reason, didn't want anymore....

I added the blue border and then used it to practice some quilting... tighter than I usually do so the wallhanging is quite firm


It's one of the UFO's that has been lingering in the cupboard... 

I quilted a few different shapes.... little orange peel type on the vase...


... and swirls in the background....


... and kind of paisley shape in the flowers ....


This week at Quilt group I put the final stitches on the binding.....

... for my hand sewing I have done another of Rosalie Quinlans Scandanavian Rose blocks.... as you can see all in backstitch and this one is using a Cottage Garden thread Canna.... 



Righto, Gotto Go..... this is a little fish I saw when in Tasmania..... he makes me laugh ....
