Good morning and HaPpY 4th of July to you!!! Anne Sutton, from Bunny Hill, is starting off my day with a BANG!!! She’s posted the next Snowbound block a day early! ; )
I wanted to share some pix of me taking and making my hand applique stitches.
My needle goes in the background fabric just behind and a smidge below the shape I am appliqueing.
I bring my needle up and catch a couple threads just at the folded edge of the applique shape.
I push the needle through with my thimbled finger...that thimble preserves the integrity of my fingertip!!!
Here's a look at my applique stitches. I am folding the background away so you might see them a bit more clearly.
And, here's my pussy cat helper in a liquid state stretched across the back of my chair!
And, the puppy dog puddle at the foot of my chaise...this work is SEW tiring!
Happy belated birthday, Consuelo. : ) And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!!!
