Working Hard...




I am having fun and will,probably be a wee bit late but as you can see Nature's Journey IS on the table!  I had a hard time starting the applique and I finally opted for the "water soluble stabilizer" method.  I am finally happy so it is full steam ahead!  So neat to see everyone's choices. Please don't whip too hard or I won't be able to stitch ;)

Don't worry Peg, I think us Canadians have a few extra hours...hee here! 15 hours if I am correct! I had to pull that card in our last SAL. So get stitching...you can do it!

It's looking great - especially love the darker blue with yellow on it.

I hadn't thought of more time ;) but I am getting a quilt sandwiched on the week-end so I am preparing it at the same time so balancing my creativity between the two. Thanks for the compliment about my blue. I was just looking at everyone's colours and I was starting to think that mine are too dark.

Peg - I think they are great - Did you want your quilt to look like the others that you are comparing them to?? or do you want YOUR thing???

Thanks Susan! ;). I think I found it was looking dark, but there will be light pinks too so it will balance out I think. I love your Avatar. Did you make it?
