My One-A-Day for January

Up early to do a bit of stitching before the day gets too busy.  This is the hand piecing I took along on camping trips last summer.  I haven't been bit by the EPP bug yet so I am sewing these piece by piece.  I have it in my mind to do a window covering for my daughter's room but I may not have enough of the fabric she wanted me to use.  It'll be a slow project if I only work on them during camping trips so I'll be stitching one a day to help it along.

practice is progress

I've never been confident in my applique skills and I've come to the conclusion that I'll never get better if I don't give it an honest effort.  While stitching this SunBonnet Sue by Reiko Kato I added a step to the back basting method and it made the world of difference for me.
