NEW WALLHANGING

I label it a wallhanging but it may end up as a book because now that it is roughly assembled and I look at it I cannot think of one plae in either house would it fit. It needs somewhere with a grey decor. I am enjoying doing it as always so who cares where it goes. I have just finished putting together the 8 blocks and started doing some embroidery on them. I want to use a lot of lace and silk ribbon on it but still stay with the white and grey tones. I made this almost entirely out of cotton with the exception of some white and grey dupioni. One of the cotton fabric had a really nice round lace type design so I am doing all of that fabric with French knots, bullions and some raised work that I have been doing in Karen Ruane's classes. On the middle angel I used white cotton a broder and grey embr. thread plus both white and grey silk ribbon in the French knots and little roses. As I finish embroidering each block I will show it here. Maybe by the time they are all done, 6 - 8x8 and 2 - 8 by 11 (to match the middle angel) I will know what to do with it.

I am entranced with your wall hanging/book. The greys with the white laces is pure bliss. I adore this color scheme but agree it needs a very special spot. Thank you for visiting and commenting. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

This is gorgeous Freda - truly beautiful and elegant.
i find if I wait long enough, the ideas will come - you'll know where to hang it by the time it's completed... lovely work, as always!

Looks gorgeous and I love the grey with the white too, so elegant.

It would be lovely on a pink wall, a dark wall or any wall color where it can be the focal point. I think it would blend on a grey wall.

Such lovely work from your talented hands!

I'm fascinated with the black/gray tones you're using. Reminds me of the Piecemaker's calendar one (which is still on my wanna-do list).
