Christmas Sampler Blocks 3 and 4

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!

Wow, I really like both blocks. You made beautiful points on the one that looks like it's moving while I look at it. Either that or I'm having a dizzy spell..LOL! Is that ric-rac on the other block? I think it's my favorite. I'm definitely going tomorrow to get my Christmas fabric as it's on SALE!! I'll try to sketch those tulip looking flowers out for a template and I have one for moving block over there :) Have a great day!
