    I have to return to work on the 18th to do inventory and other good stuff, but until then I stitch!! Machine Applique here I come!! Painted three more pink elephants to add to the herd and stitched green; grass, trees and shrubs. Still have a lot more to do as the forests are filled with green! Finishing Toni Whitney's horses and working on McKenna Ryan's Out & About. Tomorrow more green and brown in the forests and maybe some purple mountains for a change.

    Now for the animals. I still need to fix one ear and a small piece on a leg, then square up (IRON) and add borders. Tomorrow back to the forest.

    I love machine applique, it's my favorite part about quilting. Your machine applique is gorgeous, you do a fantastic job with it. Thank you for sharing. :D

    More animals on Friday. Sorry, takes quite a while to stitch those trees never mind a whole forest!! This is part of a tree being stitched. You can see where I used a white marker to show where the edges of the leaves are so they don't disappear as I am stitching. Then the stiffener on the back after sewing and then removed from the back of the tree. Back to the machine to do as much as I can before doing errands.

    One corner most done. Still have to stitch the stones in the fire pit. Back of fused tent (see the fusible web on the tent) then the front of the fused piece and finally stitched down.

    This is incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Totally awesome.
    So, after you pull that white paper off of the back can you reuse the white paper where it is not messed up? Please keep showing us. The tent is amazing. Little coffee pot. :)
