I have spent the majority of my stitching time this week putting in some applique stitches. I was going to give myself a day off today from stitching, but it just didn't seem right not to put in a few slow stiches, after all it is Sunday. I guess Kathy has made me an addict. So the plan is to finish backstitching the centers on the last two flowers. Then in the morning, I can sit down after my morning coffee and get these centers finished.
I am putting a coin on the block so you can see the size of these little centers. I call them intense, but I must say they are getting easier to do with each one I do. I just have to be in the right mood and remind myself not to be in a hurry.
I took a break from my applique on Friday. A few embroidery stitches sounded like fun so I decided to make myself a scissors keeper so that I wouldn't constantly be losing my little scissors that I use when I applique. I honored Max my schnauzer with a cute little embroidered liking of him. It is well deserved since he is always there and ready to test any quilt that I spread on the floor.
