Winter Welcome Wall-hanging

Another week – another finish, it seems that I’m on a roll.   This pattern was a gift from my quilty pen friend Carol, a small project which consisted of a stitchery block, a log cabin block, and two small applique blocks.  I added some simple embroidery to the applique blocks.

Another afternoon sewing and I assembled the pieces, added the border and made a start on the machine quilting.  Plugging away, the quilting was finished, the binding attached, and hand stitched down last evening.

I have just the place to hang my new wall-hanging, but it’s not going up on the wall for a while.  It’s Autumn here, so I’m not going to tempt the weather gods with putting Winter Welcome up on the wall just yet – I’ll leave it for another month or so, I think.  And I'm pleased to say - that's another UFO off my list.

Yes, tempting the weather gods is not a good thing. Congratulations on finishing it though. It’s very cute. :-)

This is a sweet little piece Jenny. And you are so right that the embroidery really perks it up. Also right, no one plays around with weather gods! We are in a flux...rainfall very heavy, then a little snow storm yesterday, today now 8 degrees and sunny! I wonder does this mean spring.

Well done!

Winter is trying its hardest to hang on in my area. One day it appears like Spring is going to win, and the next day it snows.

A nice sense of accomplishment, I am sure, completing on a gift from a friend.

A lovely result.

This turned out soo cute. And good idea not to tempt the weather gods... they are fickle enough lately as it is. :)

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party. Aloha hugs!
