    The top isn't all the way done, there are still several rounds of different shapes and sizes to do around the outside but I figured I'd better get the applique on before it gets any bigger.

    They have been ironed on but I think I should do some practice to get the stitching right. I just want a very small buttonhole stitch around the pieces.

    Lovely.
    I have not tried applique yet. I watch lots of videos on it but not brave enough yet.
    Keep up the good work.

    I decided on a tiny blanket stitch and got it all sewn on. That wasn't too bad!! Not as hard as I thought it would be, I was even talking on the cell phone with my daughter, holding it with my shoulder, while I did it. :-)

    Very nice job! I have been doing more applique work lately, too. The bigger pieces are not too difficult, but I'm finding that the little ones are giving me some hoots of laughter at wiggly lines, etc. Keeps me humble.
    obviously, I need more practice.

    You are making a beautiful job there, however I donīt expect anything less when I open up your threads, everything you do is just great.

    Lovely Pam - IS that machine stitching? It looks as good as hand work.
