I showed you this wallhanging as part of my post on "Sisters' Week" fall '08 but it is completed now and hanging in my new laundry room. The birdhouse roofs are done in prairie points and buttons hold them to the wallhanging.
The shelf was a tolepainted shelf that was resplendent in dusty rose flowers and blue trim, so I sanded the flowers, painted it black and got our carpenter to drill holes in the sides so I could insert a removable dowel. I can change the wallhanging with the seasons, holiday, mood, etc! PLUS the shelf part gives me a place to display some related theme items... Still looking for where I packed the sunflower stuff!
