Redwork and Wool Applique




Still mending here with the wheelchair and unable to put full weight on foot------------I can sure emphasize with anyone in a wheelchair! The back on one hand is black and blue due to ramming it into doors as I try to go through with my wheelchair!!!!


But I have still been able to work on some redwork baskets and wool applique. I have all the sheep done and some of the flowers---I have them basted on with the washable basting glue that somes in a little tiny bottle---I really like that stuff! I'm sewing them down with tiny stitches of matching thread. I couldn't reach my embroidery floss, so am settling for doing it with thread. But I am liking the way it is turning out.

I haven't done all those baskets in this short of a time, but have worked on one basket since I have been laid up----LOL!!!

I'm anxious to get back to my quilting---especially the Project Linus quilts!!!! I ordered fabric yesterday for the Quilt Barns quilt from Eleanor Burns---I'm excited to get to work on that one. I like Eleanor Burns instructions---she is so clear about everything! The book is lovely. I'm going to make the 6" blocks size, that way it should fit on the wall I have picked out for it!!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
