A Day Of Rest - Mostly...

 It was such a beautiful Sunday that I spent most of the day just enjoying the 
weather. However, as the day started to wind down, I got itchy to go into the 
studio for just a little while to work on my applique' pieces. By the end of the 
evening, this is what I'd accomplished. Deer, a crow, acorns and a few leaves.

I'm very happy with how they're looking so far, and of course, I'll add stitched
and painted detail (if needed) to bring out a little more definition in some areas.
 This is how a few of the pieces look on the "map" I drew. Today I'll finish up
the individual pieces, and then I'll form the vine that will anchor all of them
 onto the panel for my quilt. I haven't decided yet if the actual vine will be done
 in the same green that appears in the quilt blocks, or whether I'll choose a dark
  gray or brown instead. I still have time, so I may interview my fabric choices
 and see what I think. I'm looking forward to keeping my "applique' callous" 
in shape so that I don't have to reform it on my finger each time I stitch.

I can't believe it's nearly a new month...again!
So much to do, and time sure does fly.

Hi Donna, It is late and I really should be in bed, but have to much on my mind. It is going in several different directions. I like your design so far and I can't wait to see the additions. Have a wonderful day. We had a beautiful one today and it is still 64. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
