12 Days of Christmas

               Well I seem to be on a roll finishing projects at the moment. I finished the binding on this wall hanging, designed by Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched, this afternoon. I enjoyed it but I would have tackled it differently and if anyone is going to do it, I would recommend starting at the bottom at 12 drums a drumming. That way by the time your coming past the half way done mark, it isnt as daunting doing 5 rings, 4 calling birds etc as it is 9 dancers dancing, 10 lords a leaping etc.
              Hope you like the pictures,

Its so long its difficult to get close enough

                Now I will pack it away until December....


  1. I admire your stamina in completing this. I have often looked at it but stopped myself because it involved so much work. I love your idea of starting at the hardest part. Makes a lot of sense.
    Love your wall hanging. It will look great at Christmas.

  2. What a gorgeous wall hanging - well done! You will enjoy it all the more next Christmas after all the labour in it! Happy stitching!

  3. How beautiful is this! I love it. And its so original.
