Beach Huts are hung
They are done and look great. Sadly the light is not brilliant for a photo tonight and flash washes them out so will post a better one tomorrow. Many thanks for advice from Anthea whose banner experience was invaluable in checking out the sleeve was correctly aligned so it hangs straight. Hopefully tommorow Dale will guide me in a neat way to cut down the bamboo pole so they are really tidy.
In the meantime, I've made a zip bag from the piece using up the snail trail mistakes on which I'd practiced the BH quilting. Spot the mistakes? Something to carry sewing bits about in and who needs another cushion? It took me all day being a bit of a leaning curve but very pleased with the result. The worst bit was when I cut off the long bit of the zip with the pull still attached. Ouch! The good bit was that it's a recycled zip that's been in a sewing drawer since the beginning of time.
My god daughter Harriet is very talented at knitting little dogs, watch this space for pictures
