A week before Christmas I stumbled upon this blog and this owl wall hanging. As I mentioned in my last post, I've really liking the owl trend, so I knew I needed an owly of my own!! I followed the link to Christina's shop, and found that I could buy my own screen printed owl on linen. I didn't even think twice I just bought him!
I again used my Anna Maria Horner fat quarters to make this wall hanging. I didn't repeat a single fabric on the front, and the binding is also made from a yard of one of her fabrics I own.
On the back I pieced some Anna Maria scraps I had with some faux linen. On the front I used real linen, but the back is going to be seen by the wall, so I figured fake linen was okay on the back.
I hung my Hoot Wall Hanging by my embroidery hoop shrine to Anna Maria and next to my panel window treatments also a fabric by Anna Maria. It's now my fabric corner in the house. The Italian might have some other words to describe my Anna corner, but he's a loving husband who recognizes that this is my work space. I'm here every day, so he pretty much let's me decorate how I want. Love him for that!
And that wraps up the fruit of my labors from Freedom Festival 2010!!
P.S. - If you like the owl but don't want a wall hanging in your house, maybe you'd like to turn it into a pillow like Angela did.
