Gecko hanging finished


Well the top picture is where I was when I last showed you. Still mumbling over the additional flowers/leaves. 

In the end I made four more and those you can see on the finished hanging. It's now in the hall next to the front door. 

I'm hoping it'll 'settle down' as it hangs as it's got a sort of 'wobble' on it at the moment!!! If it doesn't I'll just add some weights to the bottom.

Well, as my late father would say in a VERY dull and boring voice - 'well, Sally, that's a good job done'!!!! No, in 97 years he never remembered my name!!!

  8. Funny story, especially since he called Sally 'Jane!'. That's a wonderful 'Welcome' banner! Perfect spot for it!

  9. The hanging is actually just behind the front door so when people enter the house it's hidden by the door!!!! Nobody's noticed it so far!!! I just wanted it hung somewhere and that was the first place I thought of!!! It may move one day!!!

  10. Hi Jane, This needs to come out of hiding as it is just too nice and needs to be seen by as many people as possible.
