Want to hear a funny story? This year I challenged my quilting group to a small project- Decorate a plain wooden coat hanger in time for our Christmas Kris Kringle Lunch. And they moaned at me....and moaned at me....
The first funny thing is that one of the girls asked me where I bought the plain coat hangers from. Then she said that she had to thank me as she hadn't thought she would enjoy doing hers, but she had, and now thought they would make a great gift for her work mates. That really made everyone else moan! "Don't encourage her!" they cried.
However, the real funny thing is that, with less than two weeks to go til the 8th, I was still searching for inspiration for my own coat hanger cover!
Finally I had an idea. Nanna's vintage lace! Years ago, before I was as madly into textiles and sewing as I am now, when I was just "into vintage things" my Nanna Mac gave me a bag full of vintage lace that she had
I am not sure what else I will do to finish off the coat hanger but now I am looking forward to moving ahead with the project!!!
Thankfully that won't be the case now. And Nanna would be so pleased! Miss you Nanna!!!
