  1. Hi Karen
    I enjoy reading your blog and seeing your craft projects and cooking tips. Like you, we have a caravan and I like to have some hand stitching to take away with me.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  2. Love that your "flowers" are pieced. (I'm just trying to learn applique... so pardon my dumb questions.) Did you make the striped fabric and then cut out the flowers to applique? or did you sew the strips to the freezer paper pattern?
