Birthday present for a friend *

 Yes I do have another one lol.  This present is a little more substantial than the box from yesterday - took alot more time too.

I made a hangy thingy using grey board, wadding on top then covered in natural calico.  I then used some web lace stuff on top.  I stuck my photo down, and added trimming to frame it. I finished it off with hangy pearl string at the bottom.  I used lace from my wedding dress in the corners.  I used a cotton lace for the hangy thing, down the sides and on the back.  I also made the flower from the same lace and used an old earring for the center.  I gathered another lace for the bottom with more biscuit trimming over top.  I cut out three tiny flowers from some other lace I had and placed pearls in the center.  Couple of feathers added and all finito - done - dusted!!

Can you tell I like the words ''Hangy and Thingy'' lol

Now for mother overload in pics lol

Thats it from me right now.  Thank you for popping in and hope to see you again real soon.

Hugz and love
