And while here, I actually finished some applique:
Here at Mom's I decided to add all the other pieces that needed to be prepped. I began with the nest. The inside of the nest is reverse appliqued and I then made the egg. Somehow it was too big! So I had to keep making it smaller to make it look to scale with my pair. I find my pieces grow as I trace and cut out. I've had to keep reminding myself to cut inside the pen line so they will stay the right size.
Next I added the leaves. I had very few choices of fabric with the leaves. The block now has all the pieces fused in place. I would start on the stitching, but I didn't bring thread that will work with this fabric nor invisible thread. I'll save this for Slow Sunday Stitching. I wonder if Kath will be doing it next year.
What are you working on? Would love to see your eye candy. Leave me a comment and I'll come for a visit. Happy New Year this Thursday!
