Sorry for the delay, but I just got home from two days of round the clock meetings, events, babysitting and helping mom with legal matter. I feel as if I've been run over by a cement truck. I wanted to do it Tuesday night but never had a chance with getting ready for Wednesday. So here is my completed owl and the linky button. I was going to use invisible thread, but never had a chance to go to JoAnn's and buy some. My mom said - it is so colorful, go ahead and use several threads, and so I did. I almost got into trouble as I squared up the block to 8 1/2" before I appliqued it. Fortunately, the stitching didn't make it smaller this time. Pheww!
I hope you all still feel like sharing. Would love to see your present, past or future ideas for applique.
