I am still here and have mostly caught up!

I have had a little hiatis from blogging but Nature's Journey has always been on my mind.  It is so nice to see everyone's version of the pattern! I will comment this week and get caught up on everyone's progress.  I have completed the prep work for the applique and am now taking the time to applique...between training for marathons and getting as much of Canada's short summer as I can I take the quiet moments to applique. Yay for prep work!

Here are my parts 3, 4 and 5.  I am still playing with the stems.  For part 5 I am happy with them because I went back and mad the stems ON THE BIAS ;).





I like that the project is so portable!  I can't wait to put all these blocks together! Such fun! Happy Sewing everyone!
