I'm a lucky girl

My piecing  is going well.

Madison house

Trees

The colors kinda washed out in the trees 😦 . In person they make sense with the roses at top and then the greens getting darker on the way down.

Hearts

This is what I did yesterday. I am VERY happy with how these turned out. And instead of following the applique directions I just went ahead and needle turned them. The directions were good, and I was familiar with them. My needle turn teacher had shown us that way in case we didn’t end up liking to needle turn and it’s also a good technique for when you can’t needle turn. That’s usually happens with very tiny little pieces or very large pieces. It was good to have the review. But I love to needle turn, and that’s what I did. These also gave me the chance to use my Bohin chalk pencil, which now that I’ve used it I can say with authority – it is the BEST. If you ever need a chalk pencil spend the $12 and buy this one, with the added bonus it fits neatly into my little tackle box needle turn applique tool kit.

I don’t plan on doing any quilting today. I haven’t worked on Winter Rose since Monday and I’m going to try to get back to it tonight.

I’m also famous. 😉 Stitchers Village

It was also a great mail day. The great & fabulous Terri sent me the Be Jolly freebie I was looking for and a few other goodies. Isn’t that floss tag cute?

And there was also a box from the fabulous & great Annette.

She stood in line for many hours to get our Pioneer Woman cookbooks signed, see? It’s got my name & everything!!! And then Pat (A’s mom), well she’s got my number. She sent the tiarra & wand. I took it off long enough for the picture. lol And the bookmark. Just… 😀 Black Dagger Brotherhood 4Evar.

    What great packages! I searched for the freebie but it wasn’t in the stash. Your piecing looks fabulous. Before you know it you’ll be taking it to the quilter or will you quilt it yourself?
