Making progress...............

................ slowly but surely

I'm usually quite speedy with hand applique

I use the freezer paper on top method where you iron on your shape in freezer paper, iron it onto your fabric, cut it out with a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance, tack it onto your background and then needle turn it stitching as you go - Simple! - it's the first one I was taught, it works for me and I thoroughly enjoy doing it

But for some reason progress seems to be rather slow on this piece of work

No idea why but I'm just chugging along and enjoying the process

Here we are - two rows completed and stitched together - three more rows of flowers with the applique hearts and leaves between them to go - then I'll complete the 1" border all the way round and possibly add a deeper yellow flower fabric border onto that - finally a pink binding to complete the job

Ok I'm away to applique some more
