I prepped block 4 of Spooky Halloween and decided that all of it will be hand appliqued. I’ll be taking it on vacation with me. Everything has been traced so all I’ll need to do is cut and applique later. It’s ready to be packed.
I started working on Row 2 and took some pictures of my process. First, I took the bag and separated all the fabric:
Then I put them all in little baggies and they’re organized very nicely in one of my project bins:
I have a binder of the pattern with page protectors to hold each block. Once all the fabric is separated, I cut all of the pieces (not the appliqued pieces):
Blocks 1, 3, and 5 are pretty easy since those are applique heavy and currently consist of 6-1/2″ squares. Blocks 2 and 4 are piecing heavy so there was a lot to cut. I’ll be working on the machine pieced portion first and then start the applique part one block at a time. I’ve got enough hand work to take with me so I am not going to rush to get this ready for hand work for my vaca.
I watched the first few lessons of “My First Socks” with Lucy Neatby on Craftsy.com. I finished the “cuff” part and now I’ve got to knit the “leg” part. I’ve got to rewatch that before I begin. Here’s the pick of where I was at from last week:
Here’s a pic of where I’m at now.
