Embroidered Thanksgiving wall hanging

Good news, I finished hand-embroidering and hand-quilting this wall hanging. I'm giving it to my daughter to use for a decoration this Thanksgiving. She's the one who makes the delicious meal (I help a little bit) at her house every year! A big crowd of family and friends enjoy it so much.
I bought this pattern from It's supposed to be made into a pillow--but it's the right size for a wall hanging. I need to purchase a curtain rod or a dowel for the back, and I have a nice cord for hanging it up.
I'm really trying to get my projects finished by the New Year--I have that flannel quilt to put together, and I'm still tying the quilt that I made for
There's always knitting and crocheting, but I refuse to count that stuff. Needless to say, I do get those done as I go along, but I'm always starting more! And I'm always making a hat for charity. Those hat projects fit into my purse, and I bring them along to work on when I go out.
Well, I got really tired of struggling with the postings and I reset my blog to the old method of posting. I wish that Google wouldn't put out "new" stuff until they get the bugs out!!

Hi Roz, it's a darling wall hanging. No one would ever know it was suppose to be a pillow if you don't tell them. Maybe the designer thinks wallhangings aren't practical, who knows? I think it's wonderful, and it's done! Your daughter will love it! Keep those fingers flying, you'll get your projects done *VBS* Hugs, Finn

Cute wallhanging. I am not counting my knitting project OR my quilting projects - I am just plunging in and playing.
