Applique

This is the wallhanging I made for my friends 40th birthday...she 'gets' the handmade thing. So many people I know don't!
It is a variation on the cushion I made for the autumn swap (pics on Marys blog here..)
I really like it and struggled to part with it lol!!! So next on the list is one for me!!

That's lovely - I can see it would be hard to part with it. I feel the same about the cushion, but if it's going to someone who'll appreciate it, then it's definitely worth it. It's so sad that so many people don't get the homemade thing at all.

The wall hanging is lovely and i bet your friend will love it too. I dont think you can beat handmade gifts. Time, thought and effort spent on something is so much more special than just buying a gift x
