I Did It!!

Hello Everyone,

Many thanks to Shelly, I stepped a little bit out of my comfort zone and did some needle turn applique! It took me a while, (one month late) but I did the best that I could and think that it turned out pretty well.  Plus it is on its way to you, Shelly.


I used Kaffe Fassett fabrics and Australian Aboriginals.  


All the handwork was done on various airplane flights, so it definitely kept me from getting bored like I do on flights... kept me busy and entertained.


The only thing that I am not too happy with is the way the center meets up.  Shelly if you don't like it please feel free to rip them out and redo the center leaves.  I am sure you will do what is right for you and I totally will not be offended.  Extra leaves were sent along to you, just in case.

Oh, by the way, this block is part of the Two's Company Bee.

Don't forget to pick up the third block for the Blogger's BOM.  Find out the information here.

Until Next Time...

It's beautiful, Jackie! I love the design and your selection of fabrics. The center looks just fine to me. Congrats on stretching into new territory! I signed up for your class at Close To Home yesterday-- looking forward to it! It's nice to have the hand work on the plane-- definitely helps pass the time in a fun and productive way!

I hope you've patted yourself on the back for this one (and are not worrying about the center anymore)!

Take a bow.

Seriously. Stop what you're doing, take a bow and pat yourself on the back. *AWESOME JOB*!!!

And of course, LOVE your fabric choices....but you probably already knew that. =)
