I tested my idea of doily applique to my quilt top and think it looks pretty nice.
I blocked most of the stars and a few are still drying, then I'll sew them on. I don't know how far I should go with this. If I want to bring the lacy look to the cream border, I'll have to make more stars. Did I say this would be finished by end of August? Good luck to me:)
This is what I've been sewing today, so far. My mother worked in mills and brought home buttons and ribbons and lace, and so her great-granddaughters will have doll clothes trimmed with some of that lace. Remember, we don't throw anything away here:)
This little bud makes me happy because it means that autumn is on its way.
God Bless. Hope all is well.
