Border Progress

Happy Easter Week to everyone!    Here are my Easter finishes. They were all fun and easy to make.

Easter 2014

Yes…the border is coming along. I am going to post some time lapse photos so you can see the progress. I have the center sections and the left sides complete. Here is the progress to date beginning with the photo I took initially:


Border 2a

Border 2

Center sections of borders complete.

Border 3

Left side sections of borders complete.

Border 4

It sure has been a long tedious process…but I feel it will be done soon. The right sides remain. Although, I do have all the pieces traced and ironed onto fusible…just waiting to cut out…so that will go quickly. After I fuse the right side appliques down, I can do the four corners…not difficult after all the work I have already done. Then the appliques must be sewn in place.

Alas, with these borders taking up all my time, I have done no other handiwork. :((

Hope everyone out there is enjoying the lovely spring days we are having! And for those of you living far far away, I imagine you will begin having your cool crisp autumn days to enjoy!

Amities, Averyclaire

    I love those Easter stitchings, especially the ones done on black. I really need to do a few of those PS eggs myself! Your borders are stunning–such beautiful, beautiful work you do 🙂

    I hope that you had a lovely Easter as well. I’ll bet the grandkids loved the ornaments.

    Watching your borders come together is almost like watching a plant grow through time lapse photography. And your vines and flowers are every bit as beautiful as those found in nature. Beautiful! (Once again!)
