Description

I found this pattern while looking for other things and fell in love with it immediately.  Almost instantly I knew I had the perfect deep red wool to do the flowers with so I decided to do a cotton background and do all the applique in wool.    www.ankastreasures.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/charmed-free-pattern-for-blog1.pdf


This is a 14"x20" wallhanging so the applique pieces are quite good-sized.  That makes for a quick finish.   I started this on New Year's Eve day and finished it three days later. 

The pattern is well written, free, and a lovely finish.   I used Connecting Threads "Royal Tea" fabrics as the red I had on hand from that line matched the deep red wool I wanted to use for the flowers. 

All the wool applique is stitched with a buttonhole stitch by hand.

The binding is finished.  I used the same green in the second border to bind with.   I hung it in the only place I have in the RV.   They don't leave much blank space; most of it is filled with windows and necessities.  There was a mirror on the now blank wall and it made the perfect place to hang all the hangings I make.
