    It looks a little bowed out at the bottom because I ran out of room to hand it up. It hangs straight though. I'll put it up on my wall at work. That should be the last "space" that I'll fill up. I think I might keep that section of the office to rotate in and out different wall hangings.

    The back doesn't come out very well in pictures since I used a thread that blended into the background. I'll try to get a better pix of the back tomorrow when i'm at work. That lighting might be better for it.

    THanks for all the encouragement people. This is what I do with pillow forms. I LOVE pillows but hate making them so I turn them into wall hangings. :) This fabric was found by doing a search on ebay for "african fabric".

    I have the BEST boss, in my not so humble opinion. Wouldn't trade him for anything. He goes to Africa each year for two months and always brings me back something. For about 4 years, he brought me back fabric. Still haven't done anything with it because I have to get out of the "it's too special" to use thinking and start the "what am I going to make" with it thinking.

    Thanks everybody. Now to get rid of it. LOL. I put it in the office where I wanted it to be and I don't like it there. It's all done and now I'm ready to get rid of it. Sigh. I should have known I would feel this way. :)
