Fall Wall Hanging ~ Progress :)

My Fall Wall hanging has gone from a flimsy….

To the last of the center getting completed on this 45″ x 60″ wall hanging..

Above is that last block and the stencil I plan on using in the border.. I had another pulled. but after watching a video on Craftsy … I changed my mind! lol

Here is the latest video class I purchased and it is perfect for a newbie to an old pro.. something for anyone!!!

In the first lesson Jessica introduced several stitches including these…

I went with the Whip Stitch…

And two colors and weights of perle cotton by Valdani as my choices 🙂

Here is a better close up of it…

Both theads are variegated and I love the results… let me show you how easy this is now…

Step 1 is simply using a big stitch running stitch…

 then in step 2 you wrap the thicker thread around your running stitch..

 Leaving these lovely results!…

Here is a better view of what I am doing and what I have done…

I am using a chalk pencil to mark my stencil… then erasing it by spritzing with water afterward.. it dries quickly once you soak up the excess spritzed water too! 🙂

Linking this post to Kelly at NTT (Needle and Thread Thursday) HERE 🙂

I have also been doing some sewing in my sewing room… on another cushion for Daisy… here is a cornerstone… just to share the cute fabric I added to this project.. she loves the other cushion I made her so this one will be a good bit larger..

More on this cushion in my next post as it is still in the dryer! lol

Hope you have a wonderful week and work on each project you hope to finish by the end of the month! 🙂

    How creative! I love it! I recently purchased that class, but have not finished it. Craftsy is a fantastic company. If you buy a class that you are disappointed in, you can return it within 30 days. I did this recently and got a refund without hassle. Love most of the classes.
