SKoW...the Story So Far...

So not a lot has been happening in my stitchy world this week but I did manage to get the applique part of the SKoW Stitch-a-Long blocks for December, January and February ticked off...
 The chapters are incomplete...there is still a fair bit of story to be written for each block...it seems my modus operandi for this quilt is one technique at a time, who knows why it is just how it is speaking to me, so applique is happening first, stitchery will be next once all the appliques are ticked off so it will be a little while before I have actual blocks to go on the sidebar. But as I'm now up to the applique for the March blocks while March has some weeks left in it I'm counting that as on track(ish)...it's my version of the track, I have so much trouble travelling in a straight line *LOL*...

Oh and I know the appliques are backwards and yes that is the back cover of the book..but when you don't realise you've done that until way after it is too late, it is time to move on and just live with it...so I am...
Happy Stitching...

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has forgotten to reverse applique patterns. Good going on the blocks, they'll all be finished together if you do a little on each.

Cool blocks - Is that an ice cream I see?
Oh, as well as doing good coffee your shop sells Ben and Jerry's!
Have fun playing with more applique on these blocks the colours look beautiful.
Enjoy

Thats a lot of applique work... love the colours you have there - it's important to have things the opposite way around sometimes... we all need talking points! they look lovely and at the end of the day what does it matter which way things face?

Love the sentiment yeah! a mistake has been so let's move on --- you know that is why they used to put rubbers on the ends of pencils, nowadays we can live with our mistakes or personal signature to our work p.s. sounds better.
