Butterfly Garden - Block One
Yeah ... have finished block one tonight - fingers are a little sore from the needle - I just can't get the knack of using a thimble - it feels all cumbersome to me - I've tried metal and silicon thimbles, and the good old masking tape - though I can't find anything that doesn't feel alien and awkward - do any bloggers out there have any suggestions - or is it plain perserverance that I need??
My applique is starting to look a little neater - the daisy is my last one to applique and is definitely the best on this block... it's all a learning curve and am enjoying the challenge...
I also pieced together a variety of fabric's that I won't be using on any future projects and 5" squares to make the backing for the "Swirling Leaves" quilt top - ran out of puff to tape the backing down and pin the batting and top together - that can be another nights project LOL :)
Back to work tomorrow... the weekends go much too quickly, I just feel I'm starting to get back into the groove of relaxing by Sunday afternoon, and then its almost time to wind back to full speed to get ready for the week ahead... tomorrow is a day of interviewing prospective candidates for an admin role we have vacant in our Wellington city office.
Have a happy week.
