Thoughts so far:
My block number one is Kim McClean’s block number two , as numbered in her pattern. My block number two is her number three.
It took me about a day to pull all the fabrics together. Some have said–on the Glorious Applique blog (which features Lollypop Trees)–that taking the first dive into cutting up the fabric is difficult. I recently have come to the place where I’ve realized that saving “for the best” must come to an end. What am I saving all these Fassett fabrics for if not to cut up like Swiss cheese and use?
It took me the better part of a day to stitch down the pieces.
I think those little yellow flowers on the green shoots look like cactus flowers. Well, maybe it’s the green shoots that evoke this.
I’m tired of applique. Today a friend comes and we do patchwork!
The book I listened to is The Weird Sisters.
I recommend it highly.
