I started a new quick project. Apple cores are getting old, and I need a break from them.
This project gives me a chance to used my new applique pincushion. The leaves of the applique are actually leftovers from cutting out the apple cores. I also wanted a Diet Journal to keep me accountable for what I eat. That always helps me to not pig out.
Needle turn will be my applique method here on the leaves. I love the bright colors. I found the yellow-orange fat quarters at Wally World yesterday. I have pieced a background of material that's 12" x 30" or so, and I will quilt the center portion that fits on the outside of the composition notebook when my applique is finished, but not the flap-pockets, because I don't want any thickness on the inside of the flaps.
So much fun!
My Leviticus study is coming along nicely. It's a tough one, but really deep, and I love that. This week our study focuses on holiness---it should be real good. Last week it was about the priests and comparing them and their duties to christian's as New Testament Priests---very interesting.
