Have you had a chance to visit the bloggers and add some projects to your To-Do Lists? I have been visiting and found so much inspiration so far! It’s so much fun to see Mermaids, Unicorns, personal dreams and so much more in these posts.
When I saw Joan from Moosestash Quilting’s post for sign ups for the Hop, I had to join up. I’d like to thank Joan for such a great, whimsical them for this hop!
I knew right away what I wanted to make since my granddaughter in law is redecorating Grace’s bedroom. It will be filled with princesses, ponies, winged and mythical creatures.
I’m guessing my project stretches the theme of the hop since he is a mythological creature, rather than a fairy tale.
This is the Wickipedia definition of Pegasus:
“Pegasus (Greek: Πήγασος, Pḗgasos; Latin: Pegasus, Pegasos) is a mythical winged divine horse, and one of the most recognized creatures in Greek mythology. Usually depicted as pure white, Pegasus is the offspring of the Olympian god Poseidon. He was foaled by the GorgonMedusa upon her death, when the hero Perseus decapitated her. Pegasus is the brother of Chrysaor and the uncle of Geryon.
Pegasus was caught by the Greek hero Bellerophon, near the fountain Peirene, with the help of Athena and Poseidon. Pegasus allowed Bellerophon to ride him in order to defeat the monstrous Chimera, which led to many other exploits. Bellerophon later fell from the winged horse’s back while trying to reach Mount Olympus. Afterwards, Zeus transformed Pegasus into the eponymous constellation.”
I started my design for the wall hanging with a drawing searched out on line. I enlarged it by guessing and a bit of drafting to suit the size I wanted for this wall hanging and drew it out on wax paper.
While using the metallic thread I did not have an issue with shredding. I used the Gutterman polyester metallic thread in #71 which is very fine. I went slowly and stitched over each line a couple of times to enhance the colour.
My little wall hanging finishes at 18.5” x 9” and was custom sized to fit between 2 windows in Grace’s bedroom.
Here is my youngest great granddaughter, Grace, that Pegasus was made for;
Here are the blogs I have the privilege of sharing my day with:
