What a great goal!
I'm trying not to leave too much behind for my friends to complete when I can't.
applique is done - need to add a little bit of embroidery (mostly leave veins) then quilt. Almost there. I think I've decided I don't like prepared edge as much as I thought. I had lots of problems with too much glue/starch, difficult to needle. Especially with the hand died hombre fabric - not exactly batik but very difficult to sew through (all the sunflower) and many of the leaves. I had to resort of a finger cot to pull the needle through, also had to wet it several times as the glue in combination with multiple layers was just too much. Next time I really must just do dots of glue
geesh - I forgot the picture!
I certainly hope that when you look at it that you will eventually be able to forget all of the difficulty you had in creating it.
I use the glue stick from Appliquick... never have any issues getting thru the glue...it's kinda expensive, but worth it to not engage in swearing...
I'm sure I will. I'm debating about reworking the chickadee's head. the white is appliqued on top of the black and looking at photos I think it shouldn't be so "round". I think I can pull out a section and fold it down a bit farther, make it more flat. considering....
I have one from sewline, but have only used it for EPP. I also seem to end up pinning some as they often come lose with handling. overkill

it was shocking how much was left from Denise...it's a call out to all of us! I have so many projects in work! I am hopefully going to get at least a few of them buttoned down soon..
Oh... I have another grandbaby on the way! My DD is expecting in Jan...a wee lassie this time! So of course, stuff for her takes precedence!!
