    Are you bored with me yet? :lol:

    I haven't been burning the midnight oil, I actually made these a couple of weeks ago and only just today got the pads for them. :lol:

    The chicken ones are some panels that I experimented a bit with thread painting on. I'm not sure if I like the effect but DH loves them so hopefully someone else will too and part with some cash for them at the craft fair I'm doing in a month or so! :mrgreen: The teddies were a purchased pattern but the angel ones are from a free applique pattern available here http://www.fionamarie.com/freepatterns/angel.shtml

    This was my first attempt at fusible machine applique - I used a blanket stitch for a folk artsy feel and I'm pretty pleased with the effect. :-D I FMQ stippled the white baqckground to make the applique stand out and did a curvy kind of design in the outer borders. Thanks for looking. Wish me luck at the craft fair, if I don't do well, at least I've got some Christmas presents in the bag! :lol:

    I collect angels so I am always looking for patterns. I have run across that one a couple of times and did not save it because I did not care for it. After seeing yours I had to go and save it. I love yours. would never have done it their way but yours is so cute. I guess I just don't have the imagination to make things work for myself. Thank you.

    They are all so cute. Im sure you'll sell them and get orders for more. You did a wonderful job on them. Thanks for the website address. I just got done looking through it and there are some very cute patterns and stuff in it.
    Good luck at the craft fair. I'd buy all of them. :thumbup:

    Thanks everyone - I hope they do well, I'm saving for a quilting frame that I played with at the Festival of Quilts in England back in August. May take a while but I pledged that I'll keep everything I make for that. :-D
