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.
