In case you haven’t heard, wall hangings are back in a big way. From weaving to embroidery to cross-stitch, the textile arts are suddenly cool again. I’ll admit that I’ve never had much talent in this area (my first cross-stitch was abandoned half-finished long, long ago) but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it. I love the strong colors and geometric patterns of this vintage shag wall hanging. It would really add some warmth, color and texture to the relatively bare walls of my living room. Plus, as advertised, I could always use it for a rug or even a blanket in desperate times. You can’t do that with a painting.
