This past weekend I went to my Annual crafty retreat. As always, I brought too many projects. I did bring less than last year though.
Mostly I started and finished the applique blocks for Tia in our Bee FF group. It was fun.
The red bird is from the Piece O' Cake book Applique Outside the Lines. Love them and their books!!!
I tried to draw a bird and it looked like an Easter peep. Then I found this bird in the book but facing the other way. This prompted a whole group giggle fit, when my friend Chantale innocently suggested 'just flip the bird'. Hehehehe. Yes we are 8 years old. :P
The venus fly trap was a midnight suggestion that was still fun in the morning so I went with it. Sleep deprivation and quilting is fun. Just stay away from the rotary cutter!
I love handwork. All those tiny stitches. Fun, fun!
I am thinking of getting out the applique project that I put aways a while ago.
