I also put together 8 or so baskets for my Grandmother's Garden quilt. I prepped the applique for my second block yesterday. I love the colors I am working with and am really excited about this project. Hopefully I will have a finished block to show by the end of the week My goal is to have this one finished in time for next year's quilt show.
We had a great TAS meeting this weekend, working on embroidery stitches. We were having so much fun that we ran out of time and really didn't get to spend the time we wanted to on some of the techniques! We may have to have a "part two" at the next meeting. Getting back to emboridery meant that I had a chance to finish my sheep from Jan Vaine's class:
I absolutely love him although I have no idea what I am going to do with him! I wish I would have kept track of the number of colonial knots - it took two complete skeins of wool embroidery thread to fill in his little body (he's less than 3" tall)! His legs, face and ear are ultrasuede. He was so much fun to make!
