I just need to add the dowel at the top.
I may even add little pretty ends to that dowel!!!
It measures 4 1/2 ft. wide and a little more than 8 feet long.
Let me tell you......
I think I made it more complicated than I needed to.
We do that sometimes, huh?
I found the dark heavy fabric and then I added
sparkly netting on top.
I don't think I needed the sparkly netting.
Not sure you'll be able to even see the teeny, tiny sparkles at a distance.
And you know...
it's not easy attaching two v-e-r-y long pieces of fabric together...
Oh you knew that.
You're all quilters!!!
I added the lettering and then
the bigger sparkles that you can see!!!
The backing was added like you would when making a pillow case.
This banner was easier than making a quilt.
A little more nerve wracking....
People at church will have their opinions.
You just hope...
they're good opinions. ;)
Are you surprised?
I know. Me too.
Two weeks in a row!!!
My breakfast choice everyday of the year.
Rain. or. shine.
Hand written recipe!!
The BEST kind.
And you know what?
If you could hold this recipe....
you'd see how well-loved it is!
There are many stains, pieces of cookie dough
and drops of vanilla.
You can tell from this picture I forgot the cookies in the oven
a couple of times. :/
My waist tells no tales.
Here's the particulars if you're interested:
