Moving Right Along and Lovin' It!

Americana side

Fall side
I posted a few times on this project, but I wanted to give an update on my progress. I have decided that appliqueing is fun. I had never done enough of it before to really know if I liked it or not, but since I began this little project, I have decided, I do like it.I still have quite a bit to do on this piece before I am finished, but I seem to want to work on it every spare minute I get.With other responsibilities around the home place, I am forced to wait until just after supper and before bedtime, to work on it. I carry it with me,when going to doctor's appointments and such,so I do get to work on it a bit more at those times.This piece is nothing spectacular, but since I have decided I like appliqueing, I want to make it as nice as possible. I think of other embellishments to add to it as I go along. I guess that's how all crafters do, simply because their minds are programmed that way. Constantly thinking,thinking,thinking, of new ways and things to do.I don't know how much longer it will take me to finish this piece,if I ever do,you know how a work of art is to an artist, hardly ever seems finished exactly to the artist's liking,but hopefully I will find a stopping place and call it done. At that time, I will try to hang it on the wall and compose a post showing my finished piece.

  1. Looks great Sue, I knew you were up to something!
    I've never appliqued anything.

    Brendie posted a yummy recipe I'm going to try this weekend.
