Anyway on to more interesting things then the weather and my cranky state of being. I am trying to decide if I want to take an upcoming class on raw edge applique at our local quilt shop. Here is a link if you are unsure of the method http://www.connectingthreads.com/tutorials/Applique-Raw_Edge_Prep__D47.html
I have used this method of applique on a small scale and would like to try something a little larger.
In the meantime, on the needle crafting side of my day, work is slowly progressing with the hand embroidery of my Hocuspocusville quilt. I have been under the weather for a brief period and then my hands and fingers were giving my troubles so I put aside any type of hand stitching for a while, I even put aside letter writing briefly so my hands could rest.
I did buy two more new patterns with a witch theme these are actually two blocks from a new block of the month series by McKenna Ryan
|blocks are number 3 and 8|
|acorns and oak leaf|
I am currently reading Happiness Key by Emilie Richards recommended by a dear friend of mine so I checked the library site and found a copy available in large print so it's easier on my eyes right now.
