There are pears elsewhere in the quilt, so all should be well! I just have to remember now to keep pre-used fabrics aside to put into the border applique!
I decided to make nice, fine bias stems for the pears - I shocked myself here! - I like fine stems and the rest are a scant 1/4", so you can see I have jagged these tiny, fine stems - if you haven't seen before have a little look here to see how I make my stems with a Hera Marker. I do find the weave of the fabrics is a plus, too!
Gremlins invaded my body over the weekend and I think there are a few still lurking - I lay in bed thinking of all things pretty and thought about these fabrics I had bought in Melbourne, and lots of other beautiful fabrics and designs. I didn't get to Boddington, so, sorry I have no gold to spread around. Guess what? - still cold and rainy here and I did spray my roses again yesterday afternoon - I'm going to keep trying no matter what and have arranged for Hire-a-Hubby to come 9 October.
DD and I considered taking the littlies to the Perth Royal Show today - maybe Friday now?
Happy day everyone!
