I worked on getting an applique project prepared yesterday. It’s from a pattern in the book, “Applique Outside the Lines“. It’s cute and whimsy. The background fabric is a gorgeous hand dyed from Vicki Welsh. It’s lightly glued on, and ready for me to hand stitch down. I haven’t done a lot of applique, but I’ve wanted to. So this will be my first big piece, even though it’s not that big. Now I’ve got to clean up this mess. I know, not much of a mess, but I like to keep things cleaned up and organized so when the urge comes over me to start a project, I’m ready to go.
I finished my brother’s portrait quilt. It’s the best one I’ve made yet and he loved it. It’s 7×17.I used Maria Elkins’ technique, which is fun and fairly easy.
Today is really stormy and windy. Unfortunately, I’ve got to go out in it and run some errands. I’ll be bringing a friend along, so it will be a good day anyway. I’d better get moving, I’ve got a lot to get done! See ya.
