Internet woes and new stuff

I have been having tons of trouble connecting to the Internet. Not really sure what it is as it works intermittenly like now. Any who I think it is good enough to upload piccies of what I have been doing.

Two of the girls came for a fitting for the bridemaids dresses I am making. Only a few modifications so I am happy and can now cut into the actual dress fabric as patterns are set.

While waiting on the girls I have been making some fusible applique blocks from a kit a friend gave me.
This is a close up of one of the blocks. I fused the pieces to the background and used variegated thread and stitched around each applique piece with a machine buttonhole stitch. I have made 4 more blocks since this picture. I will try and get more pictures tomorrow.
Here is a doll I made for my secret sister reveal. She collects sunflower stuff so I made a sunflower doll. If I make a doll any sooner than the reveal they would know who their secret sister was!

Karen- You have certainly been busy to say the least. I love the doll, the handbag and the beautiful applique work. Now I know why you have been silent these past few weeks. Don't forget to come up for air every once in awhile. :)
