    Wall hanging

    I just picked up this wall hanging Friday. I need to get a dowl to run thru the sleeve and a couple hooks to hang it up in the living room. It is hand quilted. In fact, the back is solid red, and the hand quilting looks so nice, you could hang it backwards, lol. It is 27 inches wide and 38 long. I think it will brighten the room up nicely.



    Lol, it WAS laying straight on the couch until Daisy walked over and inspected it, and I didn't notice it had curled. Silly dachshunds, they have to approve everything.
    If laughter is the best medicine, I prescribe a Dachshund or four.

    You did a fabulous job in creating this wallhanging! I love the design and fabrics you chose and then the prarie points really finish it with brilliance. It will make a lovely addition to your decor and add brightness. Thanks for sharing.

    It's very pretty! You could hang it backwards for Valentine's Day coming up. Make up a nice fabric heart shape and just lightly tack it on. Flip it over after Valentine's day for a whole new look. You could also tack a Christmas shape on for the holidays. Several seasons out of one nice wallhanging and you could show off the quilting too.

    I wish I could take credit for this work, but I found it hanging among the linens at the local thrift store. I'm guessing that other people either didn't notice it at all, or thought it was a pillow sham. But I saw those points peeking out, waving me over, lol. I have to admit I can spot a handmade or machine handmade quilt from 100 feet away now, lol. I pulled it off the hanger and looked at it, and when I turned it around, couldn't get it off the hanger fast enough. While I was there, I also saw what I believe is a crocheted thread table cloth, shoved into a bag. The price on it was more than I wanted to pay to take a chance on it, but they put linens half price on Monday, so I may go back and see if it is still there, too. Honestly, the things people just disregard. Well, made me happy.
