My wonderful wallhanging

grammypDecember 1, 2011

While we were at Camp Cheerio, Toolgranny surprised me with a wonderful Celtic Knot wall hanging. She had hand dyed the fabric and needle turned the applique. I think it looks wonderful over my fireplace. Thank you so much, Linda. I just love it.

What a beautiful, festive quilt. The detail on it is wonderful. Holiday wishes to both the giver and the receiver.

Marie, I sympathize with you. It's 21 in Minneapolis.

This wall hanging looks perfect over your fireplace. The 'knots' accentuate the louvers on the grill like it was meant to be!
While this picture looks beautiful, you can't see the amazing colors and Linda's Perfect needlework. She is so talented. This surprise Masterpiece was the shining star of our Show and Tell at Camp Cheerio.

Thanks for posting the picture Beverly.

I'm so glad it fit. Thanks for showing us. It looks great there. And, it's the nice sort of gift, you can take it down and put it away instead of having to hang it all year because someone gave it to you. Happy holidays to you and Tim.

Wow that's a lot of needle turning!! Beautiful!!!
A lot of people sent me heart blocks when I was so ill. My BFF of 32 yrs took the blocks and made them into a beautiful quilt. I saw it about two weeks ago and there's just the binding to finish. I'm holding my breath...I'm hoping she gives it to me! LOL!!

It is stunning and perfect for your fireplace. I agree that Beverly always does so much for others.

Linda is very generous, I know how much time went into the needle turn!

We truly do have a group of warm hearted, talented members.
