apple-themed border going around the top of her kitchen; so, I set out to design a foundation-pieced apple block. But not liking my design, I drew up an apple to hand-applique instead.
Here's what I came up with......
|I hand-drew this apple, and reversed the side that the leaf is on for each apple.|
|Then I hand-appliqued the apples, using needle-turn applique.|
Our weather has finally turned cold, so I got groceries a day early to avoid going out tomorrow. Today started out around 55 degrees, but the temperature went down all day, and a fierce cold wind made it feel much colder. Tonight is supposed to reach 27, I think. It's high time it was this cold, so I'm not complaining, praise the LORD. We are warm and snuggly and the pantry is full. My God supplies all of my needs as promised in His Word !
Oh, I almost forgot.......the crew came back this past weekend and finished out the front porch's roof. Yay, praise GOD !.....but I keep forgetting to get photos. Oh, well, the sun WILL shine again, and I'll snap a few photos.
I'm still living without a dryer, not because I can't afford a new one, but because I CAN live without one right now. As I may have mentioned before, it was the washer that I was expecting to quit working, not the dryer; so, I'm giving the washer a little time, incase I need to buy a set instead of one odd appliance. I dried a load inside today, and a load on the clothesline yesterday before the weather changed.
