Texas Wall Hanging

This wall hanging has been shuffled around my craft cottage for several months half finished. Yes, a UFO!!!!! I was struggling with it, you know what I mean? I knew it needed something special, but what? Then I remembered that rusty star I had it hanging in the window of my craft cottage, It was covered up by a lacy valance. The perfect thing! So I finished it yesterday. Still not sure I really like the outcome, I may changed it still. But I can cross it off my to-do list for now and that is always a good feeling!!

Cool wall hanging!

Thanks for stopping by..about the charm swap.
I hosted one over at a ning site a few months back

So ..let's say there is 7 in the group...you make 7 charms according to what the hostess out line. For example I had a winter and summer theme for the colors.

You keep one for yourself and the 6 are sent to the hostess and she swaps them out and you receive 6 new ones made by the ladies in your group.
Hope that helps answer your swap question feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

Oh Donna...sweet friend~

I love this! My daddy was born in Texas and was a proud NATIVE. My children were both born there as well. I wish more than EVER we had stayed there.

Now about the cake decorated rose...

My Momma told me today that you can't use buttercream icing for decorating! She said it melts too fast! HAHAHHAHAH After all these years she's still teaching me something!
