MY AUNT'S QUILT....STARTING THE FUN STUFF!
I spent the morning marking a big chunk of material for the placement of embroidery inside of 12 separate blocks. When that "math" part was all done ( whew...I despise math) I was anxious to start on the fun stuff. Oh how I just LOVE the embroidery feature on my Ellie!!! I managed to complete only one shoe before I had to stop (danged body!)...but it is just so adorable! Eleven more shoes to do and then I can cut the blocks apart and begin the applique. I am SO PSYCHED, although (admittedly) a bit scared of my first applique attempt! If I just remember to go slow and steady I should be fine (fingers and toes crossed, lol).
I think I will go sit in my rocker for a while and relax. The hyacinths that my Dear Aunt gave me the other day smell wonderful...so calming and yet "refreshing" at the same time. Spring is truly "in the air" here and I'm loving every minute of it.
