Somebody's having a good time! I wonder how many shops have been visited? How much fun would it be to go on a shop hop in a yellow polka dotted convertible V-dub? This pattern gives instructions for colored pencil tinting, hand embroidery, English Paper Piecing the border, and assembling this little 19.5in x 15.5in wallhanging. It makes me happy just to look at it!
