April SAL Finish

I see that there were a few of us who got busy stitching over Easter and took advantage of having a few days off to finish the Bon Noel wallhanging.  Think I will need the extra time to tackle May's bag, as I'm thinking the zip may challenge me.
I must admit I did take the easy way out and used just the one fabric for the sashings and borders. Cheryl

very nice...I like your varigated threads. Sometimes less is more and I by using only one fabric you have simplified this cute wall hanging....and it looks great.
