Partridge & Pondering


I wanted to share this little wall-hanging I made before Christmas. It turned out different than I had originally planned... the background fabric changed, I added trim to the lace at the bottom, and the way it hangs changed as well. For the most part though I followed my original sketch :o)

It's interesting how the first photo feels so much different than the finished piece. Sometimes I wonder if I had waited another day how much more different it would have turned out... which fabrics or trim would have whispered to me, "pick me, pick me".




It hung with my teacups for my bird-themed Christmas. I think next year may be another peppermint Christmas... this time with pink and LOTS of candy canes! Maybe I should make my peppermint garland into a PDF pattern later this year?
