    btw - name is Monica ..or Gus :lol: [grandsons' nickname...luv it... and for all you Disney fans - 'Gus gus' goes with mousie]
    aw, I love Gus-Gus!!!! he's adorable!
    so much easier to type than your board nick, lol!
    When I bought my flosses there were only so many of the color, so I bought another that was close, so I could do what your doing. Put them together and let them complement each other.
    Now your going to have me looking up those numbers. Cats may be curious...but so are some mice! :XD:

I have some blocks cut, many marked, and a few that I went ahead and did the bobbin work before the applique..I think it'll be easier for me that way.

    I think it'll be fun to see how you all are working on this, wanna share?
    Candi, your so organized! I have most of my stuff in the living room on the "Dora" table. (grandkids ;-) )
    I play while dh watches the telly.
    I think it's so neat that you shared the pics with us. I still love your red! (I bet it would look nice with a certain olive somebody got in the mail today ;) )
    :D onward, AOTH-ers...woo hoo! :thumbup:

    Oh my goodness Candi, you are sooo organized---you put me to shame!
    I can't post pictures because I work on one block at a time. Well, sorta. I did all the applique on my first 17 blocks and didnt do all the embroidery. Those I'm saving to take with me on vacation. I precut all my background squares, but that is all the prep work I did. congratulations on your plan and follow through. (I bet your cupboards are tidy too aren't they?)

    Hi Roxanne,
    Because I am doing machine applique and bobbin work on my blocks, I am finding it easier to finish one stage for a group of blocks at a time. Because every time I switch between applique and bobbin work, I am having to change needles, thread and machine settings..well you get the picture. This way, I have 7 blocks with bobbin work done, I can just leave the machine alone for a while.

    And why, my cupboards are tidy, lol. You know they say A messy room is a sign of creativity, I must have none, because I absolutely can't function in a cluttered environment...i drive myself crazy,lol, it is a disease I think, lol


    :mrgreen:

    Candi, I love your background fabric. I'm working the opposite of you. I am doing my applique work and then I can take the blocks with me and do the embroidery when I travel. I am now trying to finish my third block. I work at a snail's pace so I am happy to complete a block in a week.
