WIP Wednesday

Another week has slipped by ,it is time for WIP Wednesday , I have some things to share but I really have not had a lot of stitching time this past week with being away for a couple of days . I have lots of things in progress , some slower than others but here is what I have been working on these past few days.
 After much frustration I finished block four of the Baskets for Temecula Quilt ,if there was a way to turn that around I found it ,however they are so darn cute aren't they . I guess there is just one more to go .
I see this picture is not all that clear , this is of course the BOM Hannah and Harrington of Raspberry Rabbits fame , I have this all set to applique , it is ironed on and the embroidery is traced out but no stitching as of yet.
Another wonderful wool project , Melody of the House on the Side of the Hill's BOM  Penny Rug , again everything is ironed on but the only thing I have stitched on this is the clapboards are all sewn ,I am so loving this project .

 Just a sneak peak here as this is in progress and if it turns out ok will be my giveaway gift during the bloghop in April , stay tuned for this one :-)
 I am also in the process of making the binding for the Oriental Beauty have that about ready to sew on so by next week that should be a finish . I am linking up today to the Needle and Thread Network , be sure to stop by and visit , it is worth seeing all the wonderful work being done . Thanks for stopping by and come again real soon.
 hugs Sheila

  14. Great blocks and your wool appliqueing looks like fun. I just bought my first kit and it says to wash the wool felt pieces, do you do that?

  16. On your applique projects, do sew by hand or machine? And you mentioned they are ironed in place...with a fusible web of some sort? Sorry for all the questions. I'm just trying to get opinions on applique so I can try some projects, something I've been wanting to do.
