so here is the finish was working on this week....a pattern from the moda "cookbook" using fabrics from my stash. not sure what will become of it now as we have no wall space for it, but might use it on the back of a chair during holiday season. i started this about 7 years ago and it has been basted for at least 5 so good to get it completed. it's a simple pattern and probably wouldn't have caught my eye now, since lately been doing things a bit more challenging. even so, it is festive. *** day one of my weekend draws to a close. worked on the batik swap squares today, and now that the wallhanging is done can get back to the hawaiian. feeling more and more like fall here in southern maine. wishing snow would bypass us this year but that is, of course, sheer folly. good thing cool temps make great sewing weather. we took advantage of the chill and enjoyed clam chowder for supper today. my current read is calling, so will close for today.
