Of course I had to have help cutting out the pieces. I didn't know a two year old could use sissors. Well, not perfectly but it's her first time using them. I have to be sure to keep them out of sight when I'm not around or else she might wind up with short hair.
Here's the rose I started playing around with. It's raw edge applique with some scrap pieces I sewed together for a background. The scraps looked like someone had used them for applique before donating them to me. Kind of like swiss cheese until I pieced it back together again.
Today I've got several errands to run. I'm bundled up in layers and hopefully won't have to wait too long on the buses. Sometimes they run late and some lines have been cut down to half as many runs.
