are you nuts

I am delighted to report that Blogger is back up and running today - I have no idea what Google did with it yesterday but it was most frustrating.

I was determined to make this hanger but I said to myself, "Are you nuts?".  You see, I'm not very good rather useless with sewing wee pieces.  I could never make Barbie doll clothes -  I could crochet them but not sew them.  I dug out this pattern, which is from Kim Diehl, and started to cut the appropriate pieces....how many 1.5 inch squares?  Anyway, I persevered and finished it.  It's not an award winner but it was an accomplishment and I don't ever have to sew with wee pieces again (unless I want to) because I've been there done that. And now I have another door hanger to display for the season.

It's cute and you did a good job. Sometimes we just need to try something to see if we can then decide that we don't need to again. :)

That is a very sweet finish, you made a great job of it. Small things are very fiddly to stitch!

It's lovely! I am terrible at stitching small things together...I have no patience for it!

Love your door hanger. Fabulous. How big is it? Could you make it ornament size or would that be over the top tiny pieces?
