Nature's Journey

I am working on an Anni Downs' project ..." Natures Journey".  I am doing a stitch along with some other Bloggers. Its a good way to get motivated to do something.

This is where I am up to.....

Sorry to those who are in the Stitch along as you have already seen these photos.

Rows one and two

Row 2 started 

Row one finished

I love this... gives shape ( a template) to your needle turn appliqué and you don't have to remove it 

I love these too ...appliqué tools (suggested by Lynette Anderson) now I am getting some practice using them. 

Allows me to do a really neat circle

Remembering My Dad in law today . It would have been his birthday....I was very lucky to have him in my life ... a good man.....Cheers to you Jack Morris.
