So, here we are:
I wanted to photograph the entire process of the big unwrap, but the suspense was about to kill me!! Look, you can see a bit of my gift peaking out from the left side! I was being good though, taking pictures first!!
And Voila, there you have it!!!!:
I am so crazy about this wallhanging I could just burst!!! The colors are marvelous...ME!!! And the cross! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, it is so wonderful!! Gerrie, thank you so very, very much!!!
Here it is again, totally unwrapped this time:
Don't you just love it!!!!
The more I look at and admire this cross, it appears to me that the arms are opening wide and are ready to give me and everyone else a big hug! Does it look that way to you too? I'm also reminded of the large piece that Gerrie did for her California church and then the commissioned piece that she did for the Alabama church. I first began reading Gerrie's blog when she did the first large hanging. All along I've admired her work, but her liturgical pieces especially. Now I have this one of my very own! Oh my!!!
I also love the chartreuse tissue paper with the sparkles all over it...sorta reminds me of the little camisole I've got on today:
