I finished all the applique on the scallops and have them pinned to the wool border. One or two of the circles are of a different fabric so I wanted to place them just so. Think it looks good. Love how all the different shades of the background wools flow, like an artist painted them, Sue does have the most beautiful wools. Will applique the scallops, sew the borders and then add the final embellishment stitches around the scallops. This is sewing backwards, but I don't want to catch any embellishment stitches when I sew the borders on.
Yesterday I was sitting in the sun and stitching, and a doe came up with some others. She looks pregnant, sheddding her winter coat so not looking her best, but healthy.
She has her yearling with her. They weren't sure of the ladder, too nervous to attempt to steal any seed. A drink of water and they were on their way.
