Natures Journey February

Hi...this is the first post that I have done with my Natures Journey blocks. I am using my stash fabrics and a few extras thrown in from friends...I am using the iron on applique paper, sewline glue pen and my stylus to turn the seams under and then a dab of Roxanne Glue to hold in place while I needle turn applique. Some of the edges are not the, but I'm improving! I have kept the blocks on one large background piece to make it easier to do the blanket stitch borders....mine are a bit different to Annies pattern...I have done the stitch like a traditional blanket stitch.

My favourite block is this one with red hearts...I'm waiting on my "Perfect Circle" templates to arrive to finish off with the circle in the middle. Annie had them in a previous email, and I decided they would make my life much easier as I'm not so good with those tiny curves!

This is the stitchery that was optional for January. I have not made it into anything yet...keep changing my mind. It will come in useful for a Christmas gift, I'm sure. Can you believe it's March tomorrow??
Enjoy your weekend...Suze. x
