First Day Of School (UFO)

This is a pic of an applique that is not finished. There is suppose to be a boy in the pic too but I'm not sure I want the pic that big. There are 12 of them but I've only done these three. Last time I got them out, I thought I'd make the four seasons rather than the 12 months. They were suppose to be flat applique with much embellishment. I have given them much depth. The teacher's sleeve is made completely separately and stitched onto the blouse. I have them basted to batting and backing now.

Friday I brushed off all the loose threads and dog hair and took my space quilt in to be displayed next weekend. I made a sort of quiz to go with it. I wrote a line or two to match each name on the quilt. Just on paper.

Today I cleaned out the refrig, did three loads of laundry, took care of some paper work and finished reading a book. By tonight I was ready to think about quilting projects. Need to clean the sewing room before I get into anything new.

Love your dimensional applique - the depth really brings the figures to life.

WOW!!!!!!! These blocks are wondeful. They certainly are intricate. It will be nice to get them all completed.

You must be a very patient person.......your details are so perfect. I love the bonnet girl quilt, would love to do one some day.........a Sunbonnet Sue all grown up.

Oh, I love your calendar girls! I hope you finish them - they are wonderful. I've looked at that book many times, but always put it back on the shelf. I'd love to try these but I just have too many other things. The dimensional touches you've added are wonderful. Just look that the braids on that little girl!
