Art for Day #8


I made this door hanger today for my niece B. She requested this particular saying on it. She'll hang it on her bedroom door when she's sleeping or wanting privacy. I used purple embroidery floss for the hanger (and the embroidery). I just braided 9 lengths of 6 strand DMC and then sewed it into the little sandwich. The fabric used was scraps from the project I worked on yesterday. Started to hand quilt this, but I didn't have a color on hand that looked good, so I'm calling it officially finished without quilting it. I'll try to get it in the mail to her tomorrow.

What a fun aunt you are! I would have loved a sign like this when I was growing up...and even in the dorms at college. It is so assertive and to the point!

Awesome! I think it's a great, useful item to create...everyone needs some privacy after all!
