About 10 years ago, I started an appliqué project. I was going to learn how to appliqué and I was going to love it!
I pulled it out a couple of weeks ago. I had about 4 leaves to finish, and that was it. It’s been sitting like that for about 6 years.
I’m happy to inform you that it’s finished. At least 10 years later! (I don’t even have purple in my house any more.)
Yes, that’s real appliqué, not just ironed on and stitched by machine. I learned how to appliqué, but I don’t love it. I wish I did, because I think it’s gorgeous.
I’ve also learned that I don’t love hand work. I’d rather knit if I’m sitting around. So what did I do? I started an embroidery project.
I’m guessing there are 50 blocks and If I choose, another 50 blocks of sayings. I don’t love handwork, so why am I doing this? Because it’s so stinkin’ cute. I’m hoping the cuteness of it keeps me going.
The quilt is called Nice People Nice Things. I first saw it on Kelly’s blog. I resisted for a couple of months, and then gave in and ordered the pattern. The first block was fun!
I really am passingdowncrazy!
