New design from Darcy Ashton

Darcy Ashton has designed the "Can't we be Friends" pattern for hand applique.  In parallel I am transforming her design to be stitched out on the embroidery machine.  Each design fits an 8" x 10" stitch area.  One more friend to go!

Another Bird of Paradise Block from Pat Campbell design

I am trying to get all 9 Bird of Paradise blocks done by the end of the month, at least the first stitch out of them.

Bird of Paradise -- 3rd of 9 Blocks

I just finished the first stitch out of this Bird of Paradise Block.  I decided to use a different background fabric, which I think works better to show off the various applique fabrics.
