Finished my applique shamrocks this week.
Each shamrock square will be trimmed and pieced to make up the alternate blocks.
I took my shamrocks to a crafter's breakfast this morning. Often my sewing is a solitary affair. How nice to remove the stabilizer while visiting with friends. My shamrocks will have to wait a bit now.
I'm bringing my FMQ challenge to the front burner this weekend. This month's challenge is heart-shaped ivy leaves. I'm glad its a pattern I've done before. I don't do it often enough, so I get "rusty" between projects. Hopefully the challenge will motivate me to practice all year long. I hope to be more confident and relaxed with FMQ. Stay tuned for further details. :)
