I finished all the applique on the last Imperial Blooms and am now embellishing so needed a break. If I would break down and spend the money or just remember to buy those little cushion pads for one's fingers, can't wear a regular thimble, I wouldn't have such sore fingers. I keep hoping to come across those jelly like thimbles in town that have worked for me before. I need to actually try one on. Anyway, started another block from the Collector Series instead. The Log Cabin block.
Cut the strips for the logs, a pic of an extra project that comes with each pattern block. Can't tell from the pic, but it's fabric applique with embroidery to make a sampler.
Sewed the strips, how I love this old fabric. Cut out the freezer paper templates, iron them on, cut out the patterns. I never mark fabric, just cut a scant seam allowance to turn under.
Glue basted and ready to hand stitch, outside I go since it has been raining for several days, which is good, but it's also nice to sit in the sun. I find a lot of contentment in doing that.
