I saw this sign last night when we went to dinner and it made me giggle. Right now my elf---Mr. Dinks--- is visiting Florida and will fly up just in time to surprise Remy. My brother is having fun finding vantage points for the elf to nap. The adults enjoy the wonder in a child's eyes when he spies that crazy figure perched on the cabinet door, or handing on to the door knob.
A quick finish between assembling the orange peels. This is snack mat size ----about 12'' by 12''. I shared another applique earlier in Friday Finds. I snatched this one there and enlarged it a bit. It is still smaller than I wanted......next time I will enlarge it some more. Pieces were fused and machine stitched. I cut into some of that new fabric....on the border. Luscious!
I have reached the row assembly stage on the orange peels......and have an idea for a border. So I know this one won't get finished this year. And the floral exploration will carry on next year too, it seems. Big grin, what else would you expect?
