I've shown you this one before but it still makes me smile every time I see it. It usually goes up when I take the "Christmas-y" one down. Then when spring seems as though it really is going to appear in the north woods, this one comes down and I put up something "spring-y." Except I didn't really have anything that appropriately heralds the spring season.
But now I do!
I recently finished this small quilted wall hanging, and lo and behold, it's done before I actually need it. (We had a temp of 14 degrees this morning so unlike some of you with beautiful spring flowers dotting your landscape, there's no evidence spring has arrived here yet.)
The label I gave it is "Spring Piggies."
Here's a closer view of the
happy little piggies.
The pigs came from a panel I bought a month or so ago showing different farm animals. Along with the pigs are horses, chickens, goats, and sheep. It took me forever to choose which grouping of animals I was going to use for this wall hanging. I finally cut out the pigs and started winging it from there.
I wasn't sure how it would end up or if I'd be happy with it. Turns out, I do like it a lot, and now want to make something using some of the other animals. Where will I use them? Probably in my pantry. I already have a few small pieces on the walls in there for decoration and color, but I'll bet I can squeeze in a couple more.
