More UFO's

Ok I know more UFO's well I have plenty. This is called Lollipop Flowers. I think I have 12 of the 16 blocks done. I know just a few more. It is 30-40's prints and all done by hand applique. I love the look. I like the hand work, but I have minimal time to get much done. I would like to get to be able do machine applique with the blind stitch. I have tried and I guess I am not sure the look it what it should be. To much of a perfectionist when it comes to the stitching. I like the applique look and my list of to-do is very long. If I could perfect the technique by machine I could produce so many more. I think I have UFO's because I get bored with the time it takes.
This is a Cockscomb Star pattern. Of course the star isn't in the center yet because I got distracted and didn't finish this block. I think I have 8 of these finished out of 12.

As of yesterday I got volunteered for the birdhouse detail. I am painting them.
Jeff has Parkinson's disease and his hands don't always want to cooperate to paint. Today I am finishing up details on smaller birdhouses. The smaller they are the less wood details they have and more painting. I will take some pictures when I get a couple more done.
Back to the machine applique. I know practice practice, I think I will have to work harder and get less sleep around here. This next Spring or in a few weeks I going to mow three yards one of which is mine for extra money. Besides the gardening season starts. Oh My when will I get to sew. LOL Chris
