A Start

Okay, I finally started on My Favorite Things
this was my first attempt at needle turn...I found a great
tutorial online and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
I stitched the cherries instead of appliqueing them 
the second block was not done with needle turn but
I am going back to that method on the next one...
I am using fabric from my stash.
