Here's whats on my design floor today. It's the beginnings of a tree skirt for my sister. This is my design. The ornaments are now fused to the cut out sections. Next I will machine applique around all of them. I also add a hanging ribbon so they are not just floating in space. Then I add a couple of borders to each section and sew them all together. Check out more projects over at Judy's blog.
I was able to finish the block tote that I started last week and used it on Saturday. I am a little worried about the blocks falling out and am trying to decide if I should add some kind of fasteners to the sides or maybe a pocket on the inside to hold the blocks more securely. Not sure yet which I will do...still thinking.
Also if you follow my blog you know that my daughter, Jessica, is one of the design finalist in the Connecting Threads contest. Today they have a nice post about her and you can see her completed designs. Here's a link. As I've said before I'm so proud of her!
