    Just put borders on these - a pair of wall hangings (each 52"x43")- which I think I've sold!
    The maroon fabric they are hanging on is nothing to do with them - just for background.
    The binding will be same colour as the thin accent border around the kaleidoscopes.

    I like the colors in this one. Especially the maroon. So are you addicted too? I just can't stop thinking about these.

    On holiday in Bruges a while ago, there was a guy heavily tattooed with a vine type of design all over him walking in front of me and I was stacknwhacking his arm in my head of course, not literally! :shock: :lol:

    K I love these and well done on the sale! The ones extending out of the frame take it to a whole other dimension. :D
