The photos this evening are from this past week. I took a break from my schedule and did several applique as take along projects after A-13 was complete. I tried the silk thread and have to say, it's completely worth the investment. If you are good at applique with cotton thread, you are going to LOVE what silk will do for your stitches-----YLI is awesome! I've not tried other brands yet but am very happy with this little discovery. Thank you to the applique fanatics who encouraged me to give it a go.
Expect several updates on the blog over the next couple days. Tomorrow we'll announce the winner of the first official Retro-Fabulous Giveaway! Good Luck!!
I also plan to post some highlights of the International Quilt Festival-Chicago (Rosemont) soon afterwards. Being the eternal optimist, I expect to have some more blocks completed and posted, too. We'll see how that goes.
Blessed are the Piecemakers.
