Well hello there! Rose I hope you are reading this because this one is for you. Recently my friend Rose commented that I am not blogging very often and I think that she is correct that I needed to get over here to The Savvy Quilter and start sharing more. Besides with the Christmas season drawing near I am starting to make gifts and if I don’t document them how am I ever going to remember what I did? So here is the first completed gift for Christmas 2014. This is my first hand applique project, I used linen for the body of the pouch and wool for the applique. I have to say that I love working with wool and I am really happy with how it turned out for a first hand applique project. I also find it very relaxing to do some hand sewing in the evening. I can’t wait to see the recipient of this gift open it at Christmas since it is a very special project for me. Thanks for stopping by so I can share project 1 of the season!
