I finally finished hand stitching the binding and then I washed this wallhanging. I didn't do a very good job of basting and it got a little puckery in a couple places so I decided to pucker the whole thing. It is hanging in my main level studio, an 11' x 15' room off the kitchen (behind the garage) in a ranch style house. We put up that ugly paneling around 1984-5. It is fake wood and was very popular at the time. The only good thing about it is that I never need to paint that room. This would be a family room if an ordinary family lived here. We used it as a third bedroom when the kids still lived here.
Here is a view that shows the puckered look better.
Today I am going to start cleaning the house for Thanksgiving. I'll do a little each day so it doesn't get boring.
