A Rose

I have all the pieces hand stitched for my first complete American Beauty Rose block. I enjoyed the process. I think I need to cut away some of the backs on the rose applique. I learned I need to iron the piece from the back to actually get them to stick to the front. Some of the pieces tried to jump ship during the stitching process. It took less than week to attach and sew. I think I can handle that. So far it is a go for a tabletopper. If all goes well then, we will consider a wall hanging, then a lap quilt, then a bed quilt, etc.

I finished the first set of hourglass blocks for my civil war version of En Provence.
I have been ironing all 576 bonus 2 inch triangles from Midnight flight to use in scrap crystals. That is alot of ironing .
I have been making more of the pieces for the Rose quilt and I am ready to prepare another block for hand stitching.
I am so close on this sock, that I have been more obsessed with working on it in the evenings.
