I finally have progress to show on my applique from a recent class taken with Rebekah. Considering the class was two weeks ago, you'd think I would have more done.
I use a Lap App when doing applique. You can learn about it here if you are not familiar. I find it handy to rest my hands on it while stitching. It has a pocket for your scissors, magnet for your needle and posts to hold spools of thread if desired.
I also discovered if I add this little cutting board (there is a piece of rubbery shelf liner underneath to keep it from slipping) I can rest the piece on it and not worry about stitching it to the cover. The battery operated light clips on and is a welcome addition to these old eyes if I am not sitting under an Ott light. There are many of these lights that can be found on Amazon for under $20.
That's the quick update for today. I need to pack my goods for tomorrow's hook in. I also have goldenrod simmering on the stove to do some dyeing. I will show you the results in another post.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
