July 4th Applique
I appliqued the whole day on the Prairie Paisley blocks. I finished up the stars, the centers and the leaves. Just have the berries to do on seven blocks and these are done. I need to go back and redo one center because the placement is wonky - or maybe not. :) Oh, and a good pressing, too! LOL
Today I'm going to start piecing the rest of the setting blocks. It's all downhill from this point. I want this top finished by next weekend.
Two mornings in a row now that I'm up at 5:00, even with the alarm turned off. I guess I can't turn off the internal clock.
The TV was on all day while I was appliqueing. I hardly ever do that. I watched all three "Jaws" movies back to back, and then the complete "John Adams" series. I'd like to get the DVD set of this series. Also, "Songs of Praise for America" was playing all day on a Direct TV channel. Even though I didn't cook or go anywhere to celebrate the day, between the fabric and the events on TV, it was real patriotic around here! God bless America!
Off to clean up a bit around here. Jane may come over later to sew.
One thing I've been doing this year is about once a month I go back to my 2006 and 2007 blog entries to see what was going on in my life at that time. Well, around this time in 2006 I had just begun working on "Strawberries for Lisa," and in 2007 I had the body of the Giterdun together and was about 80% finished with the applique on All Things Christmas. It seems like just yesterday that I was working on all of those!
