Anyways. . . .with that behind me I'm onto doing the thread work of the pine needles. I know I've read and seen how to machine embrodier but have never really tried it. I won a nice sulky thread pack last month which included all sorts of stabilizers though and they have instructions. . . . .so I'll give it a whirl!
Hopefully I can fit it in while looking at all the quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - my gosh the talent out there is amazing!!!!
