The week has slipped by me with little accomplished in the way of sewing. This block is from the book "The Best Ever Applique Sampler" from Piece O"Cake designs. It is a block showing machine applique using the buttonhole stitch and or straight stitch. Our LQS, The Quilt Block would like me to teach this along with a hand applique class this spring.
I did finish my tree quilt. It does look much better in person, the colors look a little washed out.
Yesterday I got a surprise package in the mail (love those!). My friend Barb sent this to me. We are both Downton Abbey fans. What did you think about last week's episode? I won't spoil it, but I did not see that coming! So now the burning question is....wine, tea or sherry? biscuits, cookies or crackers? I will have to come up with something very proper to place on my special mat when I watch the show.
Barb also sent me this cool fabric with an owl on it, see it at the top? I will have to think of something special to make with it.
How about this awesome card too! I love the simplicity of this and am always on the look out for unique cards.
I am hoping to get back to some sewing this weekend.
