two new

Two new blocks! I am posting these blocks for my mother! Yes, I wrangled her in to help
on this quilt too. Trying to encourage her to start doing more sewing again...
She liked to point out to me, that, the last time SHE appliqued, was also the last time I APPLIQUED.
I had a home Economics class in 8th grade, where I had to applique a scene, and of course I picked something rather difficult because I had already been sewing for quite a while...
it was three little chicks under a BIG umbrella... I had a broken leg, and sat around, and thought it was the perfect thing to work on... But it was so putzy, that I couldn't stand it and I begged my mother to help me finish it!
My first time and my last time for a good 25 years!
So, Way to go MOM! Thanks for giving it a whirl! And you surprised me by trying some different things! A few yoyo's in there, a ruffle, some cording...
Thanks mother dear!

Hy V, Tell your mom to give herself a pick pat on the back. She deserves it. Your 3 chicks under the umbrella makes me chuckle. Y'all both rock!
