If you have been following for a few years you might remember these blocks.
They were cut out and basted about 100 years ago and one has the applique started.
Here they are set on point.
I am not sure how I will end up setting them but I needed a break from hand quilting so I decided to start the applique
I am not very good at needle turn applique but I am getting better……one block done.
here is the back
It is going to be a pretty quilt when it is finished but I don’t expect the finish to be very soon 🙂
I try to remember every year to write a note about Poinsettias. My first job was at a greenhouse growing them and I did an internship in college at a poinsettia farm in CA. Poinsettias are not poisonous here are a few links to articles about it. http://www.snopes.com/holidays/christmas/poinsettia.asp
And they are very pretty. Here is one I bought this year.
