Today I finished a new project. Jenny from Elefantz sent me some Aussie mags [bless her heart!] and this was in one - it's her project - the magazine is Creating Country Threads Vol 10 No 6. You can see her post here. All my organizing and punch needle practicing came to a screeching halt when I saw this - the fabric scraps were flying and I had to hunt down my fusible. The fabric I used for the borders was something I had in my stash, one of those that you have to have but no idea why. This was perfect!
But of course, it has some oops. I got all the pieces fused on and realized I'd forgotten to trace the stitchery part. Jenny has the words in the lower branch - my fabric decision for it was too dark to show stitching, so I decided to do it in the nest. Unfortunately, I couldn't see through it, so I had to draw it myself. It's ok, but Jenny's would have been better.
This is the border fabric.
I really love this little wallhanging, thank you Jenny for another fabulous design - and for sending those magazines!
Did you see the US/Canada hockey game? *sob* There's only one player I really, really dislike in the entire roster - and that's Crosby. Even before he scored the gold medal goal. [If you know any history of the Detroit Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins you'll understand.]
The closing ceremonies should be good tonight! And on that note, I would like to say a great big
THANK YOU CANADA!
Canada, you are an amazing country - kudos for doing such a grand job hosting the Olympics. The absolute nicest people on the planet. I'm so glad we're neighbors.
*EDIT* Jenny has now made the Just Nesting pattern available HERE, in her Etsy shop!
