SAFU: Sunday Afternoon Follow Up

Wow, that Friday Night Sew In really got things jump-started again for me with my main quilting project.  Saturday, I spent the day Christmas shopping with a really good friend...oh my gosh, I haven't laughed like that in such a long time! 

We braved the crowds and forged ahead and got SO much accomplished too!!  Then I spent that night celebrating my mom's birthday so again the sewing was on hold. BUT...

That left me with ALL DAY SUNDAY to get back to my quilting.  On my earlier post, I showed off the moon I machine appliqued and said I was ready to do the same with the cats. 

Well, easier said than done.  The dark fabric against dark fabric made it SO hard to keep the stitching in the right place, not to mention all the difficult turns there are on the cats.  

So, instead of continuing with the machine applique, I decided to switch over to hand applique.  What a difference.  Finally I could relax and it turned out better than I imagened! (This is my first hand applique as well!)

Too bad I ran out of embroidery floss so I had to put off the final one and a half cats til MONDAY.  Fingers are a bit sore anyhow! 

Hope your weekend was productive too.

(BTW, I have not laughed that hard in a long time either - it was sorely needed!)
