A Finish

This is a wall hanging that I wanted to finish this fall to hang up before Thanksgiving - but life happens. :)  I've been working on it for awhile in a class that we have once a month called "Woolies" and most of the time only worked on it there, but it was close and I wanted it done so finished it up. I was able to get it done right around Christmas time and though it's not Christmasy- I wanted to display and enjoy for a while.

Normally a wool wall hanging is just blanket stitched around the edge but I actually backed it with another piece of black wool - then bound it with the rust color.  I blanket stitched it on the front, mitered the corners and then whip stitched the back.  I'm very happy with it and since I made it for myself (rare) I am happy. 

Thanks for looking,
