Last week was nice and quiet, we hung out with my other aunt and uncle in Florida and I was able to get a lot done on the wreath. It's turning out just as I'd hoped, which is a pleasant surprise. Was hoping to finish it on Saturday after we left their place, but we went touring instead, about which I am not a bit sorry. It was a fun day and this week ahead is another quiet one, which should allow for plenty of applique time.
The block needs more oak leaves (obviously) and a ribbon bow at the base of the wreath in applique. Then the birds need embroidered bits, and I have to figure out if the unattached acorns need embroidered stems. I am undecided about that, though I am pretty sure about leaving off the extra 'moss' embroidery on the flower buds. Thoughts?
