When "Plan A" for the Little Bluebirds quilt didn't work (the needleturn applique), I came very close to putting the project into the "too hard basket" aka UFO pile...that would be the normal thing for me to do. However, I worked through it, and went to "Plan B"....
...the Vliesofix and blanket stitch approach! This involved recutting my polka dots, adhering the new piece to the embroidery and working blanket stitch to hold it all in place.
Here's the close-up. It's probably not as nice as the needleturn method, but considering how messy mine looked, I think this was the better option! Now I am working on the second month (it's a Block Of The Month program) so stay tuned for an update ;)
I've scrapped too...
...I forgot to check with my MIL if it was ok to post her photo, so I've blanked it out just in case. This LO is very simple, but the bunnies are flocked and so darn cute and furry that I couldn't bear to cut them....sound familiar? Hahaha! The paper, ribbon and embellishments are all from Making Memories Flower Patch, and the alphas are MM Noteworthy. My Threading Water punch got quite a workout too!
Enjoy what's left of the weekend,
