"I Wish You..."

I completed a gift for my sister a few days before Christmas but waited until she opened her gift before sharing it.  It was made from a design created by Jenny of ElefantzIt is called "I Wish You..." a shabby roses design.  I subscribe to Jenny's magazine called Elefantz Home and have enjoyed every issue so far.  Visit Jenny's blog and get to know her and you will be blessed.  I think my favorite kind of project is one that uses embroidery and fabric piecing which is true of many of Jenny's designs. 

I used a French General jelly roll to use as borders.
My embroideries could not be centered because of the way I traced them on my linen but I kind of liked the way they "float" around the wall hanging.
Wishing You Love, Hope, Joy and Peace.


  1. This is beautiful and how special to make it for your sister. Now it will become a family heirloom. Gentle week to you...

  2. This is lovely. I bet your sister loves it!

  3. Beautiful Friend!
    Woolie Stitches & JOY


  4. It's beautiful just the way it is and I'm sure your sister loved it! Wishing you a great rest of the week and blessings for the new year. Tammy

  5. Gorgeous! You have made this design your very own using the French General fabrics - they are lovely to work with, adding an air of sophistication to most designs. That hanger is perfect...

  6. What a beautiful wall hanging, Sherry! The fabric is so pretty and I didn't even notice the embroidery was not centered. I'll bet your sister just loved it! Happy New Year!
