I know, I know…I just finished a project but I have another one! It’s my birthday weekend so I was permitted to hang out in my craft room all day and neglect my motherly duties. So…looky what I made!
There was a cumulation of a couple ideas I’ve had floating around my head. I thought it would be neat to combine cross stitch and quilting.
Then I found this pattern for this wall hanging…
and realized I had a cross stitch from last spring I never did anything with…
AND it just so happens to match the fabric I bought earlier this week.
The pattern is from one of the recent Better Homes and Gardens Quilting Magazines.
Here’s a bit of a closer look at the cross stitch. It was a small freebie pattern (can’t remember the designer, sorry) that I did because I wanted to try beads.
Here’s a bit closer of the fabric I said is perfect: it’s floral…with carrots!!
Made a little tassel for the bottom!
A little ribbon tie to hang! Not pictured is all the short dowels I duct taped together to make the dowel long enough.
And a look at the back for funsies!
We have a while until Easter but it’s hanging on my front door anyway. I didn’t want it to look overly Easter-y or grandma-ish despite being what it is. Hoping it looks more “modern.”
Anyway, thanks for looking!!
