Angel Wall Hanging

I love this time of year - even though I no longer have small children and so can't go to the pantomime any more!

I did a tutorial on my website a few weeks back for redwork embroidery using the eagle on the right and I found it so relaxing that I made the festive redwork shown on the left. 

I've used calico for the backing so that I can write on the back if I decide to give it away as a very special card.  The angels are a primitive design and I love them.  I think I might try some primitive applique on a quilt some time in the new year.

It's been a fairly hectic week because I wanted to send out a newsletter showing the quilt as you go fun and done technique.  It's made by machine sewing the backing fabrics together and then hand sewing the backing fabric down as sashing on the front of the quilt.

If that doesn't sound too clear here's the video:

I've just realised that there are only two clear weeks now for me to get everything ready for the family coming home at Christmas.  It's finding somewhere other than the children's beds for my fabric stash that is a major problem - that and deciding on a hand sewn project to begin while my sewing machine is tidied away.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Hope to see you again soon.
