Although I am not ready to start this week,
I truly do want to learn hand applique soon.
I especially want to try the freezer paper method
and the starch method that Erin teaches on the My Tweets BOM.(see the sidebar.)
I think a reasonable place to start is the Consider the Lilies BOM. (see the sidebar.)
It has simple blocks with some simple applique.
A couple of weeks ago I was gifted with the perfect fabric for this BOM.
Sharon completely surprised me by sending this package in the mail:
Isn't that wonderful? And she must just know me and what colors I like!!
Of course I have already filled the clutch bag with my goodies.
I am not a purse carrying person and I am SO tired of the diaper bag and have quit carrying it too.
So lately I've been slipping my debit card in my pocket.
Not anymore. This little bag is PERFECT for my everyday must haves. Thank you Sharon!
On the bottom of that pile is a "Faith" by Moda layer cake.
It will be so perfect for the Consider the Lilies BOM.
Since I am trying to be not so uptight about HAVING to get projects done before starting another,
I might just get started this weekend!
