......after walking through our yard and spotting this on our apple tree -- along with oodles of them that have already fallen -- I knew that block for The Family Quilt must get done. Sheesh! If real trees are already dropping their gorgeous fruit, why can't I get some simple blossoms done on a simple block?
So the apple blossoms are now hand appliqued with hints of embellished embroidery.
And that got my enthusiasm so peaked! I am now putting together the next block -- and this one has to do with guinea pigs and mushrooms. Our kids have/had the cutest, little pink-nosed guinea pigs --adorable is such an understatement!
Here is the work in progress. But I am SO glad that I got kick-started into working on this quilt once again!
Psssssst. tHaNk YoU to all of you who were there nudging me along!
