Barbara received her Birthday package, Wall hanging tutorial

I heard that Barbara opened her gifties! I was so excited that I got her name for my exchange, I love Barbara, she's so happy and honest and sweet :D I could go on and on, I love reading her blog :) Anyway, being the Shepherd's Bush fan that I am I looked at the Be Attitude series and saw "Be Nice" and immediatly thought of Barbara :) So that is what I stitched for her. I made it into a little wall hanging. I am so glad you like it Barbara, you deserved a wonderful birthday :D


As I made this I did a tutorial on how to make a wall hanging. I loaded it on geocities.com, so it is a little finicky as far as how many can view it at one time. I hope that it will load for you who want to view it! I wanted to put it up on Focus on Finishing, but couldn't figure out how. Does anyone know who I need to talk to?

What a wonderful piece, and such fabulous finishing! Thank you so much for the tutorial. I have always wanted to do one of these, but was too afraid to try to wing it without instructions. If you want to post on Focus on Finishing, you need to contact Anne or Karen (links here http://focusonfinishing.wordpress.com/about/ ).

As Cindy mentioned, Anne or Karen will help you with the FOF blog. It would be great to post your tutorial there. I can say first hand that it's an awesome finishing technique!

I really, really love your gifts - you truly have spoiled me. And your sweet opinion of me makes me blush. :D
