still stitching!

I’ve been working on my wool blocks and now have all of them fused. I’m working on this block adding some stitching for embellishment.

I love the curls and how the stitching adds to the flowers. I’m not sure why there’s a dark streak in one of the flowers.

Here are the next three blocks that need to be stitched-I think they’re even pretty without thread!
I have several blocks that I’m going to go back and add stitching too:

And these blocks are done!

Working with wool is sooo much fun and addicting.

I finished Jaime’s professional tote but forgot to take pictures. I’ve also been doing some hand appliqué on my flower blocks. I guess I have a thing for flowers! Have you seen the Circuit Rider’s Quilt?? I’ve been obsessing about it and plan on getting the book when I go to the AQS show in Knoxville. If I can wait that long! It takes my breath away. Gorgeous quilt.

Work has been getting in the way of sewing; I’ve worked a few extra days and we finally finished our summer programs. We had 200+ kids some days. Now we are settling in for our move in Sept. Can’t wait for the new library, it’s gonna be awesome.
