  1. I think such a fine bird certainly deserves a name!

  2. Your post is full of gorgeous work! I particularly like those he a and the feather stitched circles are lovely. Reminds me of Ancient Greek athletes with their laurel leaves on their heads.

    Chickens are one of my favorites. Such fun blocks. I’m going to have to refresh my feather stitch. A lovely embellishment! How do you ladies keep from starting new projects every day after such inspirations! That is what you make me do!!!!

    Star A Day is magnificent, what a lot of stitching! I am working on a stack of orange peels also, background block cut at 4 1/2″. Using the freezer paper method, pressing the peel edge to the tacky side of paper then glue baste the peel (just the very edge) to the background, applique, then cut slit in back and pull out paper when done. Works great for me.

    Congratulations to Carilyn for finishing her Star in a Day. Great idea to use two fabrics for the alternating squares. It’s lovely.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
