Free machine embroidery wall hanging



I can hardly believe it myself: this wall hanging is hanging on the wall at last.

This has taken me so long to do and has been set aside more than once: now I am content with it.

The little stitcheries represent my life and the place I live; the post office, library, milk bar, the fish'n'chip shop, supermarket, the beach and picnic grounds, the CFA and the Orthodox Church, my grand-doggies, trees, birds, houses .  Most of all it represents the neighbourhood that sustains me.

What a great piece of sentiment here Dianne. Love it! Something for your fanmily to treasure too.

Looking good. It did take a long time, so many elements and each one a story on it's own. xox

Its a great thing so that others can also look at it and see whats important to you about your neighbourhood etc. I think it has come together beautifully and that you should be very proud of it.

I know this seems to have taken a long time to complete, and I know it gave you reason for concern from time to time, but it is really worth the effort. What a lovely documentation of where you live and why. I love the little embroidered shells up the left side. Nice to see it finished. Take care, hope you are keeping warm.
