Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!

I'm linking up for the first time to TGIFF . I've been looking to join Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! for a few weeks but don't seem to ever finish anything...thought oh I know, I'll put the 1st of the twisters up but alas didn't get to finish the binding last night. We've had horrendous weather, hurricane force winds and rain like you cannot imagine, flooding everywhere, the road, the drains, the ditches, coming in the front door, the roof and the utility room...ahhh well its the adventures of life and renovating in France.  As I was awake half the night, decided to take a nap...yeah RIGHT the tractor cutting up fallen trees caused the dog to bark and wake me up, so decided I might as well get on with sewing the binding....
Now it's finished and hanging on the wall, along with all our other Christmas decorations....I really need to learn how to square up properly in 2012, anyone got any decent tips or tutorials, it always seems to measure the same all sides but doesn't look square once the binding is on :(

Oh and I won a prize on the blog hop, :O) This creative blissI won one of her super Paper Lanterns,how excited am I :)


Sorry for the rubbish photo (with bit missing) but i'm in a rush to pick up the kids and get them ready for their Christmas party evening at school tonight...i'm super excited to be linking up with TGIFF !!!!

  2. And we're so excited to have you link up, Pippa! Love your wallhanging and that you have it on point - very cool! Your colour choices go so well together.

    As for tips about squaring up, I try to make sure each border is square and that my binding is attached a consistent distance from the edge. Oh and I also check corner 1 to corner 2 and then to corner 3, etc. Even when I do all that it can still be a little wonky. I've heard some people say to 'block' it. I've yet to try it, but I hear it works well for wallhanging.

    Thanks for linking up to TGIFF! and good luck with the renovation and crazy weather there.

  3. I'm super excited about you linking up too! Thank you for joining along with TGIFF! Great finish and it looks lovely. I really want to try twisters at some point. I don't know about squaring up, I don't think anything I make ever does ;) I'll be interested if anyone else has any tips!
