I am stuck at the hospital with the hubby for the next two weeks and am going to need something I can do here. I am wondering about applique? Is needle turn applique something I can learn from a book? Can it be done entirely by hand? Are there any other suggestions for handwork/quilting that can be done without a sewing machine? I've been here since Monday and am already going batty from just sitting in the chair. Thanks to all for any help.
