What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

I haven't participated in this for a long time, mostly because I don't generally have anything neat to show you. Today, I do:
I joined a Pretty Pennants swap on a Yahoo group I'm in. I was orignally going to make my pennants with vintage hankies, but they weren't big enough. By that time, I'd already got myself so excited about fabric, I just had to find some. I chose this vintage green scarf, I affixed it to a piece of quilt batting with spray adhesive and went to work.
There is a row of vintage buttons with old thread in them at the top. The middle piece is from a doily I picked up from a garage sale and the button is also vintage. I couldn't find the right thread in my stash, so they are all sewn on with some cord from some tags.
I think I might add some decorative stitching and some beads or buttons hanging off the end. I'm supposed to have a way to hang it as well, and finish the back (which is just the batting and stitches right now), but I'm not sure how.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What's on your Workdesk? Go over to Julia's to see some more workdesks.

Oh I was hoping that you had made the pretty dolly flower in the middle as was going to ask you about a pattern :( Your pennant flag looks great the green and cream look lovely together.

Your bunting is beautiful - so much detail! I simply wouldn't have the patience to do that - very envious :) xx

Bunting seems to be quite the thing at the moment and I love the piece that you have made.

Loving the vintage buttons on it too, if only I could snaffle a few for my Mum and Dad’s wedding LO because I still haven’t managed to fine the last two I need. Fingers crossed I find some at Ally Pally on Sunday.

Happy Crafting!
