Four Down and Four to go !

A little update on my SAHRR , I have all my applique ironed on now and as my title says I have four sewn and four to go with my oak leaves , however I also have several acorns to do but at least now I am started :-)
 I plan on doing some free motion veins once these are sewn down as they don't show up all that well with this busy background they are competing against.
 I forgot to show you my Autumn BOM with Rana ,(the link is in my side bar just look for the pumpkin) I am all caught up with that now infact I may have jumped ahead a bit and have the pumpkin sewn on the cake stand , risky I know but I think I am correct and if not then  this will be my own design ;-)
 This was my first project using string blocks and I really love the effect , we have smaller string blocks to use yet , wonder what they will be used for . So far I am enjoying this little BOM and thankfully keeping up .
 It is a miserable wet and windy day here so a good day to stitch . Thanks so much for stopping by and have yourself a great day. hugs Sheila

  3. Cute pumpkin! And I love the effect of string blocks, makes me want to do some myself. It's been a while since I made something with them.

  4. Both projects are so sweet...I love those little oak leaves and acorns. Oak trees and acorns remind me of growing up in the deep South...and have always been a favorite of mine!

    I admire all of you that work with those strings...I'm not sure I'd have the patience for it! :o\

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend, and I'll write soon!

    XOXO,

    Cyndi

  8. our pumpkin block looks great. I like the string blocks for the background.
    Your wip wednesday projects are beautiful too. I like your quilting frame. Is it easy and comfortable to use? I am worried that I would hunch over it all the time.
