Sorry for the dark picture, but my light is awful in the house for taking pics! I finished my Trees of Life wallhanging. The pattern is by Edyta Sitar and this measures in at 40" x 60". I had the top and bottom applique done a while ago. I had done it by hand and I was not happy with it. I know that is something I need to practice, but I LOVE this wallhanging and wanted it to look great..not with my lumps and bumps! So, I ripped it out and started over using machine applique. I am MUCH happier with the look. Plus, it is DONE! Woohooo! Okay, well, the top is done..still have to quilt it, but I will take this accomplishment for the day!
Here is a closer pic of the applique:
I will post a better pic as soon as I can find the light! lol
That is all I got done this weekend. My rheumatoid arthritis is kicking my butt. The fatigue that comes along with a flareup is ridiculous, and the painkillers I take make me not able to sleep, so I am whooped. Hopefully this flareup will past quickly. I do NOT have time for this!
Frugal tip: Make your own mixes! Stop running out and buying things like cocoa mix, taco mix, biscuit mix, etc. It is soooooooo easy and much cheaper to make your own. There are a lot of recipes online for these items and so much more.
