Another week has gone by, and luckily, there was no more snow. More time for applique!
I thought housework could wait, but Daisy (DD's Chocolate Lab) went under the bed for something and came out resembling a sheep, so I had to give in and do some dusting and vacuuming to get rid of all those dust bunnies. As a result, these blocks are only glued.





The colors are starting to grow on me, I think I might like this design after all! I still have 4 more blocks to design, and the setting triangles, so I don't think it'll be finished anytime soon.

Last month I joined Lindi's Get It Done Challenge here: http://gidchallenge.blogspot.com/ and am hoping it will spur me on to finish a couple of projects I started before I began designing my own patterns, 10 years ago! I have 8 blocks of Brandywines' Twelve Days Of Christmas completed and am hoping I will be able to finish it this year. I'll keep you updated on my progress(I hope!)
Bye for now. Happy Stitching.
