Well it finally stopped raining by the time I got up this morning. Hope that is it for awhile. Either feast or famine.

There was enough light that I took some pictures of the four triangles that will go in the middle of the wallhanging. I laid them out on a piece of black fabric but could not get a good pic of them that way. I even stod on a stool to get over them but there is one so you will get the idea. I had cut all my pieces down to the size I wanted and in this case the middle piece will be 14" instead of 20" like in the Piecemakers calender. It actually looks bigger but I measured 14" square. I took individual pics so hope you can get an idea. I did not stitch any thread embellishments on the triangles. I used only beads,sequins and pins picked up at the flea markets. I love making the sequin flowers that Jo in Australia showed us how to do. The pins on the black squares are not sewn down yet if they don't look exactly in the right place on the squares. I was still positioning them and will take the pin back off to sew down if there are places to sew. Otherwise will sew down a flat button and glue to the button.

Remember that tomorrow night I will draw a name from comments for the little giveaway.

These are absolutely lovely! I 'embiggened' them so I could see the details pretty. I'm especially intrigued with the ric rack flower in the top picture.

Oh, I agree, that rick rack flower is very intriguing. Do tell us how you made it!! Lovely triangles - can't wait for the center! Hugs, Cathy

Me too. I really would love to know how to make the flowers. Also your lovely butterfly, did you bead it directly on the fabric or make it seperately and then sew on? Lordy that was a run on sentence. Sorry. Your work is beautiful. Sharon
