Tiny Tuesday - Flower # 7

I decided to grab Flower #7 this week for the appliqué. I started it yesterday and finished it up today. I did remember to take a few pictures along the way.

I trace the pattern on the back for back basting. In this picture I have tacked the pink flowers onto the background.

This is a shot of the outline of the flower from the front.

A finished block.

Happy St. Patricks Day! Time to put the corned beef and veggies into the crock pot for dinner tonight. I cook the cabbage on the stove using some of the broth from the crock pot closer to dinner time. We have a dinosaur play this evening - Emily's Kindergarten class is preforming tonight. Another late night for the kids ... I hope they are not as cranky tomorrow morning as they were this morning.

This was my view on the way home from dropping the kids to school this morning - a sunrise peeking out over the Cross Florida Greenway - the forest near our house.

No sunrise photo opportunities here ... it was very cloudy this morning and has remained dreary and overcast all morning. Love your #7 block! Cute!

Cute block! We finally had sun today and I got in my walk and think I may have gotten a little sunburn on my face as it felt quite warm. No complaints, just enjoying it's warmth before the rain returns on Thurs and Fri.

You are so clever at all this applique. Mine never looks anything like what it's supposed to.
