Fresh Picked Posies

Here are the Fresh Picked Posies blocks I've been diligently trying to getting prepared.....I've got the first five blocks stitched down, and, as you can see, several more glued down and ready to stitch.  I love the new accordion squeeze bottle of Glue Baste It.  The tip doesn't get clogged, and I like the way it fits in my hand.  I never use pins anymore, much to the delight of my husband, since he was always stepping on them and finding them for me!

Even mom use to find my applique pins.  Here's a note she sent to me...she changed the word "tee" to "toe" and ME were her initials so it reads: Hit Recipe off the toe of ME.  In case you can't read her writing, she says, "I found this by my chair -don't know if you've missed it yet.  If its not yours, don't return it- Give it to Tom.  I've already had my turn at it."   I, myself, have never  found a pin by stepping on it....Tom and Mom were always commiserating about my pins! Now, with glue baste it, there's no more "pin misery" in our household!

Pam & I are doing a bit of traveling this year (our schedule is posted in the side bar).  So now I'm all ready to go since I've got plenty of stitching to take with me!  Just two more blocks and the borders to prepare, but for now it's time to get back to work!  I have designing to do, both for fabric and patterns.  Everybody keep stitching!  And remember, if you can bind, you can applique!  If you still don't believe, be sure to check out our applique videos on You Tube.  The links are under the header photo at the top of the blog.
