Well it took a year but the wall hanging is ready for Christmas. I first saw the designs at the Anita Good Designs Embroidery Party last October. Started the squares but had trouble with metallic threads that I wanted to be part of the design. Lucky - Lisa Shaw - a great machine embroidery teacher lives not far away. She gave me a bag of metallic thread and told me to see what brand my machine likes. It likes Superior. At Puyallup in February I purchased my metallic treads.
I worked a bit on this in the summer. My goal was to get all the squares finished and arranged and then sew it together. Finally a couple of weeks ago I took the finished squares and put them together into 2 panels. The hanging is 4 panels sewn together. Yeah - something to look at. Once I saw some results the rest was easy. There is enough snow on the ground I think I can hang it now.
I really liked the big pieces where the design was created with the words for songs.
