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?

Gorgeous!

It becomes more incredible each time I see it. I was going to say that I'd ADD the stems for the free-floating acorns, but then I thought who am I to offer an opinion to someone who can create that? I'm sure that whatever you decide will be the right answer.

Re: Gorgeous!

But I asked for your opinion! And thank you for the compliment; I am very pleased at how it's turning out.

Thoughts?

Nothing solid - just a whimpering jealousy.
