THE BERRY THIEF, et al

 
"It's the Berries!!"
;000
I found them very difficult...
But, my Berry Thief 
applique
is done...

This is my first real applique
 from start to 
finish...

I decided to add 
the "thief's" berry as
I could just visualize 
him making away
with those luscious
berries.
How could he resist???
:)))

Now to trim it up and add
some borders...

I truly surprised myself 
in that
I really enjoyed
this whole process...

**********************
GOOD NEWS!!
:)))
Our granddaughter, 
Cassidy,
is back home from her 
first 2 years of
college at
Clemson.
YAY!!

We are so thrilled and 
relieved
that she is back up here
with us...

She will be transferring to
a local college to
finish out her degree...

AND...
She has an appointment 
for her first Covid shot
tomorrow...

Things are looking up...

************************
I have chosen this fabric to
alternate with my
x-stitched
butterflies

I love how it looks with
my butterflies...

And aren't those little
fairies holding the bunches
of berries
just so cute???

I guess this post is
about 
"The Berries"
;)))

************************
I hope the coming week will
be a good one for you
Stay safe
