2nd FILLY, et al

My 2nd filly is about 2/3rds appliqued down...After watching a whole lot of YouTube videos,
I feel better about this kind of work.  For one thing I changed my direction of work and that makes a lot of difference...







And using a chair with arms
and a pillow on my lap...



little by little--learning--I guess
you can teach an olde dog new tricks...lol

And I am working away at my little vinyl- lined snack baggies for my grandgirls--here are the 1st 8:


There are two of:

And two of these:
CAT in the Hat for those upside down days....

and two of:
Russian Nesting Dolls and

only one each of:
 the birds and bunnies:

I have Flower Fairies left--making double of those as I figure they will be sought
after by both girls....;))):


You can see these are all set up to be "velcro-ed" and sewn up....on the right you
can see the vinyl lining...great for fruit and veggie snacks at school.....

Thom and I went out for an early breakfast this morning; and then I worked on our deck
appliqueing. Lovely cool breezes for about one hour--then the heat ramped up....

Tonight I am making Salisbury Steak meatballs in gravy over mashed potatoes with green beans...
A new recipe (NR) . I put the meatballs together this morning and got the taters ready to cook....

Hugs to all, hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday...
