Craftsy 2013 BOM - September block finished

Handwork...YUK!!!  These flower appliques were pulled around a card stock shape to get smooth edges.  The pulling part was first hand basted around each shape.  I sat in my easy chair one night and basted each shape.  Next day I pulled and pressed and then machine appliqued the pieces.  I didn't realize how spoiled I was to machine embroidery applique!!  The manual process on the machine now seems so slow and cumbersome....

I think the block is rather cute!!

Keep on Stitchin'!!


  1. It may be slow but it looks great! Love the colors!

  2. Thanks so much!! Slow yes. Mainly because I keep dropping the needle! My grip just isn't what it used to be!
