A few more stitched details and a new finish....

Having finished my 'tulips and forget-me-nots' wall hanging which I showed you in my last post, I decided that it needed a couple of extra little details just to finish it off.

I added a couple of extra machine-stitched details to both of the butterflies on the lower wings.  It was a great way to use some of the special stitches offered by my sewing machine and I think they added something extra to the appliqué.

I also decided that the tulips would look to have more depth if I added some straight stitched edges to what I think of as the front petals.  I am so pleased that I decided to add the extra details and I am looking forward to getting this hung up in the house now.

Since finishing the wall hanging I started a new project to make some little fabric boxes.  These are to hold some Christmas treats as gifts for a couple of quilting friends.  I can't wait to share them with the recipients later this week.  (They will have been filled with chocolates by then!)

Wishing you a wonderful, creative week.... 😊 xx



  1. Those flutter-byes are so cute, but I have to say that I love the little fabric boxes. They'll be a really special gift especially when filled with chocolate!

  2. Love the Tulips 🌷 🌷 🌷 wallhanging ( maybe it’s my Dutch heritage) the extra details are lovely.
