I had to share this little cartoon my friend Rita enclosed in her get well card! It really gave me a chuckle!!! Thank you again Rita!
I also thought I'd take a photo of some of my applique essentials. The item in the upper left corner is an armchair caddy. It has the pincushion in the center and a pocket on each end. I used quilt labels for the pincushion and pockets. Next to it on the right is a small pillow. When I took Mimi Dietrich's Baltimore Album classes, she used a pillow like this. It really comes in handy to help you attach your pieces, smooth out your fabric, and jab some pins in when you need something handy! On the center left are the remainder of the 52 berries waiting to be placed on templates. Then there is a needle book that one of the ladies in my quilt guild made. And on the bottom is one of the borders for my Warm Wishes for Christmas quilt! Must go now as I can't sit at the computer for very long. Will see you again in a few days! Happy sewing!
