While I was off on Staycation, Michelle did a great job of holding down the fort. She managed to feed the fish and water the plants! (There’s a rather humorous inside joke here that bears telling at another time!) Anyway, on top of sharing a couple of projects, she also gave the site an overhaul. I LOVE the new look. We’ll have some exciting news to share about it soon.
While I was “gone”, mcimand asked if we could turn our new mushrooms into an applique block. Since we love pleasing our readers, it was one of the first items on my to-do list. So, we now have the Wee Folk Art Mushrooms available as an applique block. Note: The actual pattern includes the 4 mushrooms pictured in our banner. When making this block, I picked 2 of the mushrooms, #2 and #3. I blanket stitched the mushroom shapes to the block, slightly overlapping #2 over #3, then adding the spots using a running stitch. This is just an example of many ways you can use the 4 mushroom patterns. Later in the week I have plans for sharing a different use for the pattern.
Hope you like our new appliques and find many uses for them. As always, they were designed for a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The pattern is available in our FREE Applique Data Base and you can get it here. Enjoy!
