Applique *sigh*

I am feeling sad that this applique block I have enjoyed doing so much is almost finished. There are only about 5 pieces left to attach, and 3 of them are pinned on.

Ahhh, look at the urn. I did not fussy cut or centre the print onto the urn. The entire fabric was pretty, so I just appliqued the urn and let the fabric do its thing.

I was supposed to do a lot of piecing on my day off... but I spent most of the day in bed, feeling unwell. The upside is, I have lots of hand sewing done (I can rest, sit and sew at the same time)... but the downside is, I need another hand project (preferably applique).

I guess I had better pull out the 12 Days of Christmas quilt blocks again, and do the 6 geese a laying....

Oh! I love applique!
