quilted wall hanging (hopefully)
I think I've bitten off more than I can chew. I have a very dear friend in Canada whose daughter is getting married August 29 and I'm not sure I can get this done in time. The wedding invitation, which is in three language (Spanish, Arabic and English), has this great picture of a tree with all the curlicues and it's h.e.double.hockey sticks cutting the blasted things. I can only cut for short periods because my hand goes to sleep. Another wonderful thing about growing old. I wanted to do the whole tree as one piece but the curls get tangled and I've had to chop the tree into pieces. I'm thinking about using some Angelina along the branches and I'll put the whole think under tulle. Maybe the cuts won't show.
This will be a wall hanging about 20 inches wide and 15 inches tall. At least, that's the plan.
Ana, if you read this, don't tell Melissa.
