Sidetracked

Do you remember these "little gems"? I told you about them on February 17th. Each little block measures 6-1/2". Well, after I showed them to you, I got sidetracked by health issues and other "life stuff," and I had set them aside.


Every so often, I'd kind of think about them and remember I still hadn't done anything with them. Well, I finally pulled them out of the pile and started playing around with them. I've come up with this setting (sorry--not a great photo; it's much straighter than it looks and I've cut off parts of the corners!):


I still want to add some applique into the plain white areas--some vine and flower stuff, I think. (The center is a pre-printed piece--not "real" applique, by the way.) I think I like it so far!

I was supposed to have nerve conduction studies done on my hands on Wednesday, but the doctor's office called to postpone the appointment until Friday, so I have all day to play with applique. I'll let you know what I get done. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Sweet! The center block goes with your work as if you designed it that way. Well, Done!!
Ok, so I will transfer my prayers to Friday now. I just want you to get a good diagnosis. Thinking of you Toots!
