    My 'Garden Delights' Wallhanging

    Hi there,
    I just finished this wallhanging in memory of my mum- she loved gardening and our house was always full of flowers during the summer months. As I got older I really wanted to make something in her memory to hang on our wall.
    The middle block was done on my embroidery machine. the wallhanging is a meter square. Thanks everyone!

    WOW! This is beautiful. I love the way you've turned those star blocks into flowers. Great embroidery as well. My Mom also loves flowers, though she can't garden much anymore at age 91.
