Sister Sew Day

Saturday, I got together with my little sister, Rosie. I was working on the Tidings quilt (labor intensive) while she was finishing up projects such as mending and banners and those adorable gumdrop pillows by Amy Butler...Rosie brought out a project that had wool cut-outs to be appliqued. The freezer paper technique was used, where you take and trace your design on the freezer paper and then iron to the wool. She knows a lady who does extensive applique with wool, who loaned her this pair of scissors. They are by Olfa and let me tell you--it was like slicing through butter--slick. Must have some.

Rose has been paper piecing these 3 1/2" blocks, using Halloween fabric. She is undecided what she is going to do with them, but aren't they fun!! I fell in love with these...

I thought this picture was too cute on the fridge. Kit colored it and I told her it was darling. She said, "Do you want to have it, Aunt Mary?" I told her I would take a picture of it, so I did!!

The little applique Halloween blocks are wonderful. You will have to show us how your sister ends up using them.
