    Wanted to have this finished by today but wasn't going to happen. Just started on it to late and that chicken wire embroidery took longer than I thought it would. She will be hanging next year in all her glory!! If I get the binding on it :lol: This was my first attempt at needle turn applique and want to THANK ALL OF YOU who helped me with places to go for instructions. Now am keeping my eyes open for something else I can work on like this in the evenings. Still don't like those inside points!!!

    Cute! You did the chicken wire all by embroidery? Wow! I always thought that the background chicken wire was a printed fabric!

    a.dor.able! Please, take my advice and get it done now! Me, I've set too many things aside to finish 'later.' And they don't get done. Great job.

    Thanks all for the kind remarks. As for the chicken wire, I found a picture of some fabric, copy and pasted it into a program then got it to the size I wanted, made a copy and transferred it to my material.

    I guess one advantage to not getting it finished is that now I can go to JoAnn's and maybe find some Easter material for the boarder and the back of it really cheep!!!

    I have this pattern also but if I have to embroider the wire there is NO CHANCE of it ever getting done. Hat's off to you for a great sewing job. It really is beautiful.

    Very cute! I can't believe that you did all the chicken wire by hand! That must have really taken a long time.
