~*Just a Little More*~

Wool applique that is...

This sunflower was from a doodle drawn by Kelley... kanknchester. She always has such sweet, prim doodles!

I still can't share what the 'whats' are yet. But I will tell you, they are stitched on an old army blanket... inspired by the famous Maggie Bonanomi!

The appliques are simple & don't take long to do... but the 'whats', from begging to end... with a few to several interruptions... take a day for me to complete. I would like to think I'm getting faster having made 6 so far... but I think that is only a happy thought. I will say for sure though... I'm REALLY liking the finished 'whats' and I hope they bring joy to the recipients too. Heck... I'm liking these so much... that I may make a few extras to offer on my Early Work Mercantile page for March... and a few more for that craft show in April! I'll be stopping by the store today to get a few more supplies... so I can keep on makin' 'em!

Be sure to stop back by tomorrow... I've got a bunch of ~*Friday Finishes*~ to share with you. I'm sure you will be delighted to see 'em all... I know I was!

Wishing you warm smiles...
