A close up


Look at me go!! I am giddie with excitement that I have learned how to use my sewing machine...This is my second project using the sewing machine. This week over at Just us Girls is Wild card week. The Challenge is to make a Pennant Banner with a love theme that is optional. I decided to make a country banner using Lauren Meaders new Febuary Template Welcome Home. I love everything country and have hung this above my fire place..My girls noticed first thing when they got home..Thanks for stopping by today...Monique

Oh my this is just the cutest banner ever - I love the paper (as you might know if you saw my chicken coop) but this is really really clever and cute. I love the stitching too - fits your mantle perfectly - great job - sorry I'm late commenting - had a couple of days of no internet access ACK! Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls :-)
