Sew and Tell Friday!

I was going to make Amy Butler's fabric necklace free pattern found on her website, and I started to do so, but i got to step 2 and i was confused! So I e-mailed Lauren to ask her about it because i got lost, and I'm going to wait to here back from her. So instead I made these:
Its not really sew-n-tell, its more staple-n-tell. I had my wonderful boyfriend cut out 4 squares from wood and put a wall hanging thinggy on the back a few weeks ago, and i didn't get around to doing what i wanted to do with them until now! So good for me not getting the pattern!

This is where i hung them in my room, above my sewing machine from the 20's.

Now i just need to change the color of my walls i painted back in high school!

I hope you like!

Hop over to Amy's Blog, and check out everything else people completed this week!
Peace & Love J-me

Sorry I couldn't be of any help. But I like the wall hangings. Have you seen the free Amy Butler patterns to make wall hangings that say "peace" and "love" it reminds me of you :)
