"Sing, Choir of Angels."

Hello,

I have my first finish for the month of August. Wednesday night I finished putting the binding on the wall hanging, "Sing, Choir of Angels".

"Sing, Choir of Angels."
This is the project where I used the dyed purple fabric, the Angel in the middle, the piece in the middle of the top border and the large piece on the left side border. I really enjoyed making this as it had a lot of hand sewing. I can sit and hand sew for hours. I much prefer doing buttonhole by hand than machine. I also hand quilted around the Angels and Stars.

I found the pattern in  Australian Homespun The Christmas Issue No 74 (Volume 10.7) It is designed by Roz Leadbetter of Country Cupboard Designs.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

I like hand sewing to, it is more relaxing than sitting at the machine. The dyed material came up really great, well done.
