Something New

I broke out of the box today and made this:It’s a wall hanging and I’m not sure if it is done yet… I’ll look at it again tomorrow and think on it then.

I knew I wanted to do a patchwork style background. I used fabrics to represent the ground, green grass, the sky, etc. I then attached an embroidery hoop to give it some “depth”. I knew I wanted a tree and bird theme but did not want to embroider the tree so I found a stick that looked pretty tree like to me, and attached it with some thread. I embroidered the spring leaves and the blue birds and viola – a wall hanging inspired by nature.

Singer and Craft Magazine are hosting a contest and if I still like this tomorrow, it will probably be my entry. It was fun to do something different for a change – perhaps I do this more often.

    This is so great!!! Is there anything you can’t do??? You should make a few and put them on Etsy and see what happens.

    I can’t cook rice very well. So yes, there is something I can’t do.
