I finally finished the applique portion of my Santa Maria block! Yeah!! There is still quite a bit of embroidery work to do before the block is ready to sail. My plan is to applique as much as I can between now and the New Year on my Baltimore Album-style blocks and then begin basic embroidery in January 2013! I plan to attend the Applique Academy in February and I will bring what I have finished with me to Virginia. There are so many talented participants and I'm hoping to find inspiration, suggestions, tips, etc to continue on this journey.
Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving to all! I am always very grateful to my blog readers for you comments and encouragement!
Until next time...
