Well, I think I just appliqued my tiniest piece ever, the bird beak. Can you see it? You may have to enlarging the photo. And, I also appliqued my second pair of tiny feet. Block 20 of the Civil War Bride quilt was a nice one to stitch and unlike the previous blocks, there was room to spare without crowding the seam line.
Last week, I hand appliqued Block 20, but really should have had it done months ago. Everything was ready to go; I just needed to make some bias stems. Now, I don't know what it is about me and bias stems, but I always seem to put off making them. I'm not sure why, as it is not difficult to do. Anyway, when I finally got to making them, I made lots of stems, so I should be good for many more blocks.
228 of 500 Klosjes Completed
I have really fallen behind on my Klosjes, only six made in a little over two months and what a depressing bunch they are! Of all the bright and happy Kaffe Fassett fabrics, I managed to bring home some dull ones.
Time in the Pink Garden is where most of my free time has been spent over the past couple of weeks and I sure can't complain about that. We seem to have come into a dry spell, so many evenings are spent watering the gardens. On July 1st, as I watered away, fireworks filled the sky for Canada Day.
Right now, my focus is on my Tiny Thimbles, but I also have the urge to do a little stitchery too, so I have prepared the next Sweet Nostalgia block, it is called The Witching Hour. The question is will I get it done before the real Witching Hour?
Until next time.....happy quilting!
