Finished and on to the next project

Well I finished sewing the binding on the Christmas wall hanging or table topper that I was working on and showing the words too. It turned out really neat, anyway I think it did. I hope the person I have in mind to receive it does also. Here a couple pictures of the goofy looking red work elves. I planned the piece around these elves.
Here is a picture of the completed piece. I figure it could be used as a wall hanging or a table topper, whichever the person chooses. I do need to sew a hanging sleeve on the back and find a rod for hanging it.

I am almost temped to keep it for myself but that would not be prudent. I kept singing the song while making the piece. I think my husband is not sick of the song. I must also let you know I can not carry a tune at all. Oh but it is fun to sing anyway.
I hope everyone had or is having a good Halloween. We did not get very many trick-or-treaters. I am saddened by that. I like seeing the little ones, they are so cute. It was a very pleasant evening but hardly anyone came on our street. It sure was not like that when my kids were young. One of my daughters friends stopped by with her three little ones, what a pleasant surprise. It is so odd to see them as parents.
Well I am going to close up the Halloween shop and do some sewing. Have a good evening. Dot
