Finally finished with the applique part of the Hawaiian block....
next step is to do the shadow quilting around the flowers. Excuse that it is not pressed but I just added the last of my stitches. I have decided that this will be a table topper. Well, to be honest, I think I have decided!And while this was being worked on
I have started the embroidery on the blades of the Dresden wreath. I know it can be difficult to see the stitches..... but I am doing the Chevron stitch and really like how it looks. Simple and not to distracting. The Sulky thread catches just enough light to be glitzy. I am so enjoying sewing again. I felt I needed a break form cross stitch, not entirely, but just a change right now. I have a few new fabrics to make a couple more of the Prairie Point ornaments too. Today after Mr H's doctor appointment we plan to drive over to Carefree to The Enchanted Pumpkin Garden. It was great last year and from the looks of the postings it will be great again. I will be sure to post pictures. Amazing carving and displays. Can you believe it is almost Halloween? We do not get trick or treat kids here in our community. This is the first year Mr H did not put out a pumpkin patch out front. Right now I need a cup of coffee and scrambled eggs. Wish you could share them with me, but still happy you visited today. Thank you for your friendship and kind words. Have a great day.
