One of eight

There are 8 pieces in this section, and I thought I would bang this out in no time. Ha! I don't really enjoy applique, and so it's not in my wheelhouse. That little stem took me at least two hours. I made it harder on myself than it needed to be. I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out how to turn the stem inside out (you don't). Finally looking at the bias bar I figured out that it doesn't get turned inside out. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Seven more to go, but not today.

I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

This looks like a project. What pattern are you using?

2 days and counting. Congratulations on reaching this milestone.

You know, it's not that hard...the pattern is called "Cattails in the Meadow," by Judy Neimeyer, of course. You know I'm a Judy fan! :)
