Some of you may have seen this in other venues, but where else should it be than on my own blog. This pansy wallhanging started out as a drawing less that 2" square and was charted and re-charted (is that a word?) several times until I had five petals to work on individually and in a large enough size to make it easy to handle. They were then assembled using the same chart, padded for dimension, and backed. I used several types of embellishment including application with Wonder Under, machine and hand embroidery, lace, ribbon embroidery and the beaded face was a gift to me from my friend Shirlee Fassell. I "dressed" it using dyed laces. A tip for you if you decide to do a shaped wallhanging: There is a piece of light weight lathe inside a casing that runs across the two upper petals to keep it hanging straight. It is actually hanging from two plastic rings sewn to the outside of the backing. I hope that you enjoy the photos and will feel free to write with questions if there's something that interests you.
