I've FINALLY given birth......

….to finish number 2!!!!  hehehe…..I bet that got you thinking!!!???
Well, I’ve been working hammer and tong to get this wall hanging ready to celebrate the birth of a friend’s baby in December and I didn’t want him to be celebrating his 21st before he received it!!!!



It’s “Once Upon a Time” by Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches and was featured in the Kid’s issue of Australian Homespun….Number 89 (Vol 11, no 10 if you’re interested). 




The fabric I used was Zippedy Doo Dah by Sandy Gervais which made it very masculine I thought, and brought this little fella to life..



I didn’t follow the plan exactly but used all different threads to suit…some DMC, some Cosmo, some Mouline by Madiera and some Cottage Garden, and I love all of them





Hope Riley loves it too…..now off to sort out UFO number 3!!!!!
Sew many sugary hugs
