Actually, when I looked it up, it was February 2013 that I brought home this beautiful cross stitch wall hanging from my mom's. She had made it with her stitching friends many years ago. At the time, the colors she used to make the cross stitch into this little wall quilt were all the rage. I've had it up on the wall in my sewing corner since I got it, and while I loved the cross stitch part of it, the rest of it really didn't match anything in my living room. I had asked mom if she would mind if I took it apart and redid it, and of course she didn't. So yesterday I started, and cut the cross stitch out of the middle of the little quilt.
Today I bordered it with some black fabric, got it quilted and bound, and now it's hanging in a new spot in my living room. I even had this sewing machine hanger to hang it from. I love how simple this is...I think the cross stitch is more the focal point now, which is just what I wanted. I really do love it! :0)
