Applique Progress

Here's another section to block #1 - still need to add four stars to the blocks below the squirrels and pumpkin carriage but I need to practice prepping the stars. Points and I are not friends. grrrrrrrrrrrrrr And, of course I'll need to add the finishing touches later - buttons on the wheels and on the door of the carriage, embroidery from the carriage to the squirrels and heart leaves. That will have to wait till later so, I'm going to set this block aside temporarily and start prepping the pieces to block #2. This so exciting and I'm having an absolute blast. LOL

Thought for today: May the work of my hands be a gentle expression of the love that is in my heart!

Gratitudes: Air Conditioning - it's hot and muggy today - ick!

That carriage is so adorable. I've not seen that Pumpkin Hill pattern before - it is really nice. And I like your Turning Twenty quilt. The pattern is in my stack of patterns, but I have never tried it. Now that I see yours, I think I will do it.
