Fall is Here
This is the first applique piece that I did and had no idea how to do it!! So don't look too closely, it has LOTS of mistakes in it. LOL I didn't even know what kind of thread to use for the blanket stitch, so I just used regular sewing thread doubled. :D But in spite of it's quirkiness I love this quilt. Guess it will always have a special place in my heart since it was the start of what was to become my favorite form of quilting...needleturn applique. It's quite cool here today...had a storm come thru again last night, and it washed all of the haze from the air, so it's one of those perfectly clear Fall days. A few clouds floating around...a great day to get outside and putter around. I still have a lot of cleaning up to do outside, but I'm trying to do as the dr. ordered, and not get too excited about anything. LOL Hopefully, after I get next week's tests behind me, then I can get back to the outside chores.
