Hello. I'm pleased to say that this wall hanging is now finished, hip hip hooooray. The idea for it came from Carol at Crafty Club. She explained how to paint on a piece of sacking. Then Janet made one, now I have done this one, and Pat has made a start on hers. Not that we copy each other, each one is different, we just share ideas.
It is 19 inches long, and 16.5 inches wide, not quite as big as the curtain ring flowers, and slightly bigger than the zippy one. I had no pattern in mind when I started it, and picked out random colours of wool, ribbon, and narrow strips of fabric, to do a simple running stitch throughout. I put a border of black wool around the edge to stop it fraying any further. Then I stitched it onto a black background. It is quite thick, four layers in total, three black, and one piece of old curtain sandwiched inside.
Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
