Hand applique

Work in progress and new projects

You might remember the Christmas stitcheries I was working on over the spring and summer?  I think I blogged a couple of them- but not all.  This is a BOM by AnnAKa, called "Glædelig Jul" (Merry Christmas), and I have the top all put together now.  All that's left is to appliquè the doves and Christmas baulbles. For some reason this last step seems to take a while- but I really need to just get it done!

Here are the doves almost ready to appliquè onto the top.

And this is ONE of the reasons for my procrastination- I had a layer cake that I just HAD to use..... So I made hourglass blocks, fun and quick when i just wanted to sew without having to read instructions.....

Oh, and I dug out some older fabrics from my stash that I want to use for a class sample- this one needs to be done in two weeks- so I guess it will be my focus project this weekend :-)
What are you working on?
Hope you have a great weekend- thanks for stopping by!
