Needleturn is my therapy!



I just love needleturn applique...could say I'm addicted to it (just have to find more time!). So when Kim McLean's Flower Pots pattern came along...how could I say no?

I've made up 3 panels so far and almost finished the fourth. It's so nice to have something to do with my hands at night when I'm watching TV. It's suprising how quickly these come together (mind you, I started these last year!).

Unfortunately for me, I have since purchased Kim's Lollipops pattern, and now her Flower Basket Medallion pattern, so I had better get the needles flying!






A big THANK YOU to Mrs Schmenkman for sending over such lovely people to comment on my new blog...I appreciate everyone's kind words and encouragement.

It makes me feel better to know you started the panels last year. They look quite complicated. I love how they are coming together, and your fabric choices (love those Kaffes!) are perfect.
