she believed...


Another pattern accomplished.  Another new technique tested and tried.  This one a bit more successful perhaps.  


Applique pattern by the lovely artist Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.


It didn't hurt that the sentiment behind this pattern kept me churning away.


Each swoop I embraced...at least it was complete.


Love this bright combination of trim, stitching and fabric.


Once it was ironed I mounted it on a canvas frame and placed it in a prime position for daily inspiration.


She believed she could...SEW she did.
