learning to knit 2 socks at once on 2 circulars--
hand applique for a block that will become the centerpiece of a group project--
Not being very experienced at hand applique, I am very happy with how it is coming along, considering I was bouncing around in the back of the bus while trying to keep that slippery silk thread in a needle and take little stitches and not spill all my little pieces all over the floor! I had prepped the pieces all before I left home, using heat-resistant template plastic, liquid starch, and travel iron. It still needs a basket, more leaves and little circles. It's a pattern I got from the Quilt Show when I was a member last year, each month was a different applique block and this is just one of them.
Now off to work on a little experiment--if it turns out you will hear about it!
