Angels come in all shapes and sizes...

I've not had a chance to do much stitching in the past week, and with visitors from Melbourne for the next two weekends in a row, I think my posts may be a little thin on the ground.

However, I did remember taking a photo of this wallhanging at Mum and Dad's over Christmas. I made this for them as a Thankyou after they helped me out when I got myself into a bit of a pickle... And for everything else they have done for me too! It was one of the first things I made with the sewing machine Mum and Dad gave me a number of years ago, and like another I made at the time, it was made using a zig zag stitch around the applique pieces with a clear thread. It's probably not a method I would use again, but it was a great way to see results quickly.

I remember that I made it from a pattern in a magazine that was meant for Father's day, but I have no idea what magazine it was or who designed it.
I still have no word on Pointy kitty - thankyou all for your lovely comments about her though. I'm hopeful that she has found a wonderful home!

Hi Renee - Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I've had a lovely time visiting you here ... that ginger and chocolate cake is going to get a try out - it looks fabulous!

Take care :-)
