I have not spent much time on the sewing machine. I have been working in the yard.
Here are the next two blocks for the Christmas sampler. I still must machine stitch the applique; they are only ironed on at this point.
I have not done machine applique before. I'll need to set up another machine, as my Juki only has a straight stitch. My old machine has zig zag on it, but no applique stitches. So I have brought home one of the church machines that does have a few applique stitches on it. This is all new for me!
