More Hanging Going On

I made this piece in the months before I found my new house and moved. It fits above the fireplace as if I had made it for the area. Kismet?
I love looking at my dad, it's kind of a classic image, don't you think? These are images I had Spoonflower print and I added the stitching and the words, Mairsy doats and dozey doats and dads are topsy turvy. The one above the couch has patches of grey suiting material.

When I was picking art for the bedroom I thought I didn't want to wake up to people looking at me so I added these painted and beaded pieces, which makes me think about doing some beaded things again. I find the beading very relaxing, plus there is something about hearing the sound of a heavily beaded fabric on your work table.


  1. Welcome home!!!! Blessings! happy Thanksgiving! Mary Helen

  2. Mary Ann - I hope you have had a lovely Thanksgiving Day in your new house - starting new traditions. I love seeing your quilts hanging in your house - and Easter Sunday hanging in mine! Love, Del

  3. Looks great how you arranged your art work. How do you hang it on the wall?

  4. Del I am surrounded by family and they don't argue or complain!

    Anon. I used to sew a rod pocket and use a lattice strip to hang them but now I sew velcro to a strip of twill tape and sew that to the back of the quilt. Then I take the lattice strip and staple the other side of the velcro to it. All you have to do is hang the lattice strip evenly and then press the quilt to the velcro. Easy for one person to hang a big quilt.
