Jake, Wool, New Applique and Nursery

 I had been saving my thread cones for Jake to play with. He was entertained for quite some time, building a little tower. Who needs real toys??
 Still working with my wool applique. It is so relaxing and enjoyable!
I kitted up another quilt this past week. My Evening Blooms from the Country Inn.
 Now I have all nine blocks ready to stitch. I took pictures as I went to help remember the order of the pieces since each block has a similar layout with the leaves.

 And now, a little pink and aqua going on around here getting ready for another grandchild.
 Love these colors and aqua has always been one of my favorites.
Hopefully I'll get the quilt top quilted this week, a pillow made and the nursery will almost be complete.

Working with Wool

Still enjoying working with the Summer Block of the Week wool applique from Primitive Gatherings. The applique is relaxing to me and it's nice even if I don't stitch but half an hour a day. I'll probably get two packets this week since the holiday last week must have delayed the shipment but that's okay, I am enjoying the journey.
