News from the couch

This has been my view this week and will be for a while more. I finally had a long term ankle problem fixed so I am stuck here. It is driving me a little bit crazy and probably driving my family competely crazy but I have had time to knit.
 And time to try out some needleturn applique. I thought I would try the cute flowers in Poppy Lane by Gail Pan.
I pulled out some low volume backgrounds and bright scraps for the flowers
 I've surprised myself by really enjoying the hand sewing (even if the points on the leaves are driving me a little crazy)
 I have plans for these three, but its going to have to wait until I am a little more mobile.

Jennie at Porch Swing Quilts has made a huge version of my Wagon Wheels quilt. Head over to have a look and for a chance to win a couple of patterns!!

Awww for the foot, but yaaa for the hand sewing applique. Sadly a skill I truly lack hahahahah.

Well it's a good thing you have handwork hobbies to keep you occupied. Hope you're soon dancing in the streets. Gorgeous Wagon Wheels quilt! I love your little flowers too.

I love those appliqued flowers. Hope the ankle is feeling better soon.

Hope you are up and about again soon. Some enforced rest time can be good for the soul (and the crafting though....)

Points are hard. For what it is worth, yours look great!

Oh no! Sorry about your foot! I LOVE those little flowers though -- I can't wait to see what you do with them!

Do the leaves first so the points are hidden under the edge of the stem xxxx
