Whilst I love my hand applique, I mostly do this in the evenings. My sewing machine is my friend during a day sewing at home!
I am making a new paper foundation pieced design from the "Pickle Dish" block. This is a version of the Double Wedding Ring pattern but instead of plain or rectangular units in the arcs, the pickle dish has spikes: lots of spikes!
I am in production mode to make all the spikes in a colourwash of colours and fabrics using my favourite reproductions. Nearly done...
These are already finished....
This is one completed block! I am happy with how it looks.
I know summer is getting closer when all the roses are in bloom. I found this gorgeous red rose outside Glenfield Uniting Church on Sunday. Perfect.
I hope you get some stitching time.
