I finally did it!

I have been putting off this shop sample for a long time because the appliqued just scared me, but this week, I decided that it's high time for me to tackle the project and show it who's boss! And did I ever whip it into shape!

Here is the first one that I got through the applique on.


The entire project calls for 8 cupcakes - 4 will be place mats and 4 will be a table runner. Last night, I got all of the applique finished and now, I just need to assemble them to the backing. It's a sew and turn type finish so hopefully it won't take too long.

I took today off so that I could get Bubba back into the shop and show them the noise that he was making. Now, I just have to get him to start making the noise so that I can run him up there.

Super cute! Are they all turned under? I'd have put it off too if they are the turned under applique.

If they have to keep your machine again, ask for a loaner - one of their machines to use while yours is back in the shop. Then, you can keep working and have a machine for the retreat. I would ask. It's ridiculous that Bubba is having to go back to the Dr.'s!!
