Tropical Wall Hanging -finishing touches.


This week we have been having unusually hot weather in Scotland so its been a bit of a distraction.  I did try and find myself something that could be worked on while sitting outside and the finishing touches to my wall hanging were the perfect answer.


I made little flowers from Suffolk Puffs (yoyos) and sewed them around the edge.



For the flower centers I sewed  2 circles together, fringed the seam and stuffed them with a little wadding to make them 3D.

At first I made them in blue but it was not the right colour choice.


Finally decided to go with yellow.



Next I turned my attention to the gecko - he needed some more work.


I am still in the process of sewing on beads -slow work but worth it I think.


This is more or less finished now - which means I can start something new......  and I have !

Yesterday I found out I'd won a fat quarter giveaway on Karin's blog, My Love of Sewing and Quilting.
That certainly put me in a good mood.  Go and check it out and become a follower because Karin will be having more giveaways and interesting quilty stuff coming up.
She also keeps chickens and blogs about them too.  I'd love to keep chooky hens - must be so good to have fresh eggs every morning!
Anyway, that's all for now.
See you next time
Rhianon.

It looks lovely and the hand finishing (always the best bit to do I think) looks fabulous.

Well done on the win too!!
