The Hungry Caterpillar Wall hanging
|The completed Wall hanging!|
December 22-24, 2012
I have a commitment to complete things and have some fun with projects. I went on a 2.5 week vacation from work. A much needed vacation. Of course, I spent 2-3 days relaxing and taking an easy, but by the 2nd day, I was starting to get bored. I spent 2 days cleaning up my sewing room up and I realized that I've committed to a lot of projects, but I would never finish them. So, the first project I focused on was the "Hungry Caterpillar" wall hanging. I spent a long time trying to finish quilting it. It was a challenge to decide how to quilt since I'm still a novice. But I did it! It took me a day to finish quilting it. Then the next day, I focused on getting that binding on which went fast by sewing machine. I had to finish it by hand and the miracle is... I finished the hand stitching at 10 pm on Christmas Eve. I thought, "Why not give it to my 15 month old son for Christmas?" In a box and under the tree it went! the next morning, my son stared at it and smiled and hugged it. It was a better reaction than I could ever have expected especially from a 15 month old. I'm so proud that I finished this project and it will be displayed in my son's room! On to the next project!!!
