I'm so very, very sorry for your loss. I never take for granted a day that I get to spend with my husband.
Happily, your granddaughter is doing well. I'm going to say a prayer for her.
It's a lovely wall hanging! If you can't "live" with it like it is after a few weeks, get some fabric paint and practice making the 3 shades of brown on your borders look to match the edges. I personally love it.
Sorry 4 your loss You runner is lovely hugsxxxx
It's really beautiful ! A good work !!!
It is so nice to see your post. I love your wall hanging and would just put a bit of the frame fabric under each shelf. Sorry to hear about hubby and pray everything stays good with GD. Best wishes and Happy Stitching!
What a nice project & your book case is so well done. Given that and also that I'm a "ripper" if I'm not entirely pleased with something, I rip it and fix it! So, I recommend taking it apart and adding in the wood look fabric for the shelves. I don't think you'll regret it!
Sending you a big hug regarding your loss.
Gosh I am so sorry about the news of your husbands passing. It must be so difficult after 53 years of togetherness. I am glad that your granddaughter is in remission and you went back to sewing. Your wall-hanging is just great as it is. The cat between the books made me smile.
Thank you for your kind words....
This is a wonderful wall hanging you have created.....so sorry about the loss of your beloved husband, but the bright light is having your GD in remission.......big hug and blessings......
Thank you yes we are all very happy with my granddaughters remission she still has to go for bone marrow treatment but she is doing well, we are so proud of how she has dealt with it all .
So proud of you that you're up and dressed and stitching after the scare and loss you've been through. It's a new and not always fun life to be single again. You never stop missing them, but it does ease.
As for your cute hanging, if the shelves really bother you, you could glue gun some real wood balsa strips over the cloth shelves, and then you'd have a mixed media wall hanging! It's happy either way!
Thank you so much. The balsa wood idea is something to think about xx
Carol, so sorry to hear your sad news. What a wonderful example you and your dear husband have given your children - 53 years is a wonderful achievement. I hope your healing from his loss is easier each day. It is good news to hears that your granddaughter is in remission!! Your wall hanging I think is just right! I knew right away that is was book shelves! Well done! Hugs, Laura
Thank you for your kind words Laura am glad you saw it as a bookshelf I am still not there yet .
Sorry to hear about your Husband I am in a similar situation and find sewing is a way to have my mind settle on something else for a while at least.
Good news about your Grand Daughter.
I really like the wall hanging and would leave it as is.
Thank you yes sewing does help a lot
I'm sorry for the loss of your husband. He is still with you in your heart!
I'd leave it as is. When people see the books, they'll know what it is!
Thank you maybe I expect so much more from myself I will hang it up and see what I think xx
Sorry about your Sad news!!Awesome project completed!!!
I am so sorry for your loss but so thankful your granddaughter is doing well. My granddaughter 30y/o just had biopsy yesterday for a lump in her breast. Scares me as I've had breast cancer. I'd leave your wall hanging. As I have been told many times, we are so critical of ourselves. I think it is perfect and as others have said, a remembrance of sorts. Please leave it and hang.
Thank you for your kind words.
What a bittersweet year you have had. I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's death, but am so pleased that you still have your daughter.
I love this wall hanging, so creative! Please leave it as is. I think it will look great wherever you decide to hang it.
Thank you for those kind words
I am so very sorry for your loss Carol but pleased to hear about your granddaughter .
As to your wall hanging - I personally think you should leave it as is, a sort of remembrance of the time you made it. I think it is lovely. We are all too critical of our own work. Look after yourself.
Thank you so much Sarah it really has been a hard two years but sewing and embroidery helps at lot not that I did much. Now it's time to heal xx
Thinking of you.
I' so sorry about your loss!
What do you think about appliqué book-shelves with the binding-fabric? You should hang it up remembering your husband.
Thank you I think I will hang it and see how I feel
My sympathies on your husbands passing. Prayers are coming your way for you and the family. Glad to hear granddaughter is in remission. Take it one day at a time.
Thank you so much
Hi Carol and welcome back. I am so sorry to read about your husband's passing, but happy to read the good news about your grand-daughter going into remission.
I enlarged the picture to have a closer look. Are you referring to the light criss-cross design that are meant to be the shelves? If you are really concerned about it, you could go over it with a darker thread to make it stand out more. Personally, I'd leave it. Love Chris
Thank you Chris yes am referring to that maybe you are right just being over critical. My granddaughter still has to go through bone marrow treatment but she is doing just fine
I'd leave it as it is - a bookcase with lovely additions and place left for more books.
I'm sorry for your loss. I hope embroidering and sewing give you some pleasure.
