Welcome Friends and "Flakes"

Here is a little wall hanging that I have been working on and finished this weekend. Its a free pattern at http://www.mulberrystr.com/ and was fun to make. My mom wanted to make one too to hang on my father's door at the nursing home. So I traced off the pattern for her, she did the stitching and I finished the wall hanging. Her's is not quilted as she wanted it back right away and I did not have time for the hand quilting. The branch is off the oak tree in our yard, I glued some acorns on it and sprayed with glitter paint, which makes it look frosty. Looks real cute on his door.


Notice a difference in the wording on my moms and mine? She felt people would take offense at being called flakes! This became a big debate between us and I ended up covering the word "flakes" on her wall hanging with pretty foam snowflakes.

So, be ye friend or be ye flake or be ye both, you are welcome to my blog and thank you for dropping by!

He is so cute and a great way to make your Dad's room stand out in the nursing home. The crayon part really adds to it a lot.

I thought about the flakes things but it says friends AND flakes. But, if Mama ain't happy, nobody is happy! LOL

Adorable, I think the "flakes" refers to welcoming the arrival of snowy weather, not people. But, I'd change it if my mother insisted, too! ;)

You glued on the acorns...or Dad glued on the acorns? ;)

Love you!

I'm a friend, blog friend at least, and a flake (bad day at work). The crocheted ornaments on my tree were made by my Mom many years ago.
