    I have just finished three PPing wall hangings.. finally !!

    the first one is a small hanging of a dozen Christmas ornaments....
    I had just put the sashings and first border on and was just about to add the final border when I took a really good look at it.......
    OMG, 1/2 was facing north and the 1/2 was facing south !!!!
    (all depends, could be east & west).......

    so I decided that the best thing to do was continue by making it a table topper so it can be seen right from either end of the table.

    Don't you just hate yourself when you do something so stupid ?

    #2 is a bit larger and I got this one completed without it being upside down or backwrds

    ..... this one took a long time just to find all the fabrics needed, like the grasses, the rocks and the different skies and waters..... it really was a fun project.

    #3.....I saw this one in a McCall's magazine when someone sent in their finished hanging for a "show & tell" in the mag. I fell in love with it and then started on an intense search for the pattern...no one seemed to have it...

    finally, found a lady in Pa and she sent it to me. This was made entirely from stash..and was a ball to do.

    Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

    Those are lovely! I really like the lighthouses. Can you send a link for all three of them? Pretty Please! I had to go back and look at the ornament one again. If you would not have mentioned it, I would not have noticed.

    That's it. I think we should kidnap her and hold her until she sends a link. :-)

    I love Paper Piecing, except for the mess it makes on the floor of my sewing room. I especially like the jeweled forest.

    the Christmas Ornaments was a kit by Grannie Suzannie designs, at www.Granniesuzannie.com

    The lighthouses was a pattern called the Sampler Lighthouses, also from Granniesuzannie.

    The last one as I mentioned is called the "Jeweled Forest" and I went looking but couldn't find it. I do know that it was in a December issue of McCall's Magazine and I believe that it was 2009.

    Hope that helps and thanks also for all the compliments...
    errors and all !!!!!
