Block 1 - check!

I spent most of the day sitting on my fluffy behind working on this charmer and I'm happy to say that it's done! WooHoo! I need to add buttons to the vine however that will have to wait.

I have to admit that this little guy had me smiling most of the day.

Tomorrow it's back to the giant sewing room decluttering! Ugh!

Thanks for visiting - come again soon!

In Friendship!

Oh, your block is too cute.
Love your basket. I have my pieces prepped and a few sewn on. It is going to be so much fun to sew and see everyone's blocks.

Way to go! I have the basket and stars prepped already and the leaves and snowman cut out ready to baste to the freezer paper. I bought some fabric today that I may use as background but I am going to take another look in my stash one more time before deciding. How did you make your snowman (any lining? is it cotton or wool?). I hope to start doing the applique soon. Yours turned out so pretty.

Annelies Dease said...

Oh how i love your block....wishing and hoping mine will be half as cute. Could you share with me/us what kind of applique you do???? Needleturn with starch is my guess, but would love to get a lesson from such an obviously talented applique artist.
I have your blog bookmarked. You and Anne...what a combination, and what a joy!!!! XXX Annelies
