I'm looking forward to the Christmas Quilt Along so much that in my mind I moved it up a week. Sorry, check in next Saturday, February 12th for the Quilt Along.
I've been working hard all week finishing up loose ends on some quilts and re-doing other quilts. I started out with this grouping of fabric for a block for the Toyland Tree quilt that I'm designing. Most of it is still on paper, but it is coming along quite nicely.
I got out all of my applique supplies......and I discovered that my stiletto (and I don't mean shoes!) and my glue stick and other applique necessities never made it to the cabin. They are still at home on my sewing table. So improvise it is......a meat thermometer works just as well as a stiletto. In fact it has a dual purpose.
....into this. I'm still working on his little face but I really need my applique glue for that. Applique pins work well for the rest. After I took this picture, I realized that I needed to move his right arm down. He's looking much better now. He reminded me of the Tin Woodsman in the Wizard of Oz who said, "My arm, my arm, I can move my arm."
