This little wall hanging the ladies are working on is a great way to use up Christmas scraps, a change from making cushion covers.
Jeannette was modelling a top she had embellished with some beads a few months back. I just live these colours.
I have the main panel of my wall hanging quilted using a random patterned stencil and have just the smaller panels to quilt which shouldn't take too long if I just stuck at it.
I did spend more time this week on my furniture projects with Annie. Sloan paint. I picked up this little box in a junk store for a fiver and thought it would work well as an umbrella pot for my hall.
I distressed it a little and then felt it needed something more. I left the wax off one panel and then painted a flower in oils on it. It will take an age for it to try but only began using oils and wanted to play with the colours.
I googled for ideas and found a peppermint cosmos I liked as the colours worked well with the base colour of the box.
