Update on Piece and Plenty Applique

I managed to get some more done on my P&P. I keep asking myself why I am doing this, but I am doing it, slowly but surely.

This past weekend Kathy was using my Bernina for sewing and it was not acting well at all. It had been a while since I had used it. I pleaded insanity and the local Bernina dealer felt sorry for me, so he agreed to look at it. It needed to be oiled and the "board" inside the foot pedal had become corroded and needed to be replaced. And he was kind enough to do it today, so now the trusty Bernina is running like a rabbit again, and ready for applique. It makes a beautiful applique stitch and I can always give up on this hand jazz and do it by machine.

Absolutely love the colors you are using. I especially love the large print in the basket.

I am fairly new to machine applique, but my Bernina makes it easy! Your basket is so lovely.

Wow, I love this block!! Who is this pattern by? and what a fun seize-the-moment visit with your friend Kathy! Sounds absolutely wonderful!! Those happenstance play weekends are usually the best kind! :D Just found your blog, BTW, and have added you to my bloglines---I'll be back for more visits. :D Happy Halloween!

This one is still waiting. #2 should be here any day and #1 is still waiting. Sigh! I'm behind - did I mention that #1 is still waiting and #2 will be here any day. BIG SIGH!

LOL - yours looks wonderful.
