Happy dance! Finished Noticeboard!

Friday night was spent cutting out and organising fabric placement for my Noticeboard. I don't know why choosing fabrics always takes so long! Then on Saturday, a trip to Launceston to choose my frame. I wanted a wooden one (love my wood), as there was not any white in my version, I thought the brown would suit much better.

Today, my LOVELY Dennis, made the frame for me, cut my Foam Core (he is such a sweetie xx), then I set about getting it together!

Here is how I put it together on the back side:

Then Dennis put a piece of mat behind it as the frame was quite full we didn't have room for much else to cover all that stringing.

And here it is all finished!! Talk about *LOVE* it! I used 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' by Fig Tree Quilts. Something fresh and vintage!



I left out the brown in this range as I wanted it to be light and fresh:


I am just SO happy with it (cant you tell lol).


Now, where shall I put it; Sewing Room or my Quilting Room? Or, should I make another lol!


Thanks Leanne for such a wonderful useful project!
x Sarah
