A New Wall-Hanging...

This past year, for my mom's birthday, I took her on a quilt retreat.  She loves to sew, and I don't take the time to sew much these days, so it was a great excuse to relax and work on a new project.  I invited my aunt as well, and booked us into a local hotel.  I chose one with good proximity to restaurants and craft stores...perfect!

We had a great time and as I chose a larger room layout, we had plenty of space for three sewing machines and ironing board and all our project materials.  I wish I had taken my camera, we used all the space available!

Our retreat was in January and I just finished sewing the binding on my new wall hanging.  I love the greens and browns in my living room and a new wall-hanging brightened up this corner a bit.

The brighter green is one of my favorite new fabrics, full of inspirational words..."Make Life Beautiful", "Make Life Simple", "Make Life Fun"...perfect words to remember in the heart of the family.


  1. So Cute Jennifer..great job! I love the color combo as well..I think green is on of my favorite colors. I love to sew as well but always need more time...a retreat sounds just like the ticket!

  2. That really turned out so great Jen!! Fantastic job :)
