Happy Valentines Day!!
I finished one rose star block for the rose star block party. I think this block is a bit to hard for my first try at English paper piecing!
I like the looks of it, but all those little pieces, Whew!! I am appliquéing, or attempting to applique this block onto a background piece and will make a pillow out of it.
Since that block was beyond me, I decided to try something easier. Grandmother's Flower Garden. I have always loved these so much.
Much easier!!! I didn't even over baste this time.
This is a perfect project for me to work on while I am elevating my leg (which I have to still do more than I am happy with). I have another almost finished that has pink in place of the blue.
Still not too much crafting going on, but I am trying. I am making a clapotis for my MIL for her birthday but that gets boring really quick. I only like the part where I get to drop a stitch and make it run!
And I am very slowly working on some more Farmers blocks.
