Quick Sneaky Peek!

While it hasn't been much fun having a head cold for the last week (am back to about 80% now!!), the hibernating under my flannel blankie and stitching in front of DVD's has meant quite a bit of hand stitching has been happening here at the Meares' Madhouse. I've already shown you the yummy Aviary charm squares that I started my new quilt-design-in-progress with ...

... that I then sewed together like this ...

Well, this last week I have been stitching away at the applique elements of my new quilt - and quite enjoying the process ... in between blowing my poor dripping nose! :0) I've finished stitching about 85% of the applique, so thought I'd follow through on my promise of a sneaky peek. Ready??

Time to stop and smell the flowers!! (Which I can do now that my cold is finally going away!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) Some cheerful yellow daisies! Hmmm ... whatever could be hiding on the rest of my new quilt??? Should I have a guessing contest??? You'll just have to stay tuned for more sneaky peeks to find out, cos I'm going to keep you in suspenders a bit longer! Tee! Hee! Hee!

And on that teasing note ... I'm off to curl up in front of that heater again to continue my stitching. I'm really quite convinced I was meant to be a bear who hibernates all winter!!! Hope you're all having a great start to the week! Bear Hugs!
