If you click on the picture you can see a larger view and you will be able to see the machine applique. I am still learning on this new machine but it turned out pretty well. The best thing about this technique is now smooth the petals are. I am very pleased so far.
As to our snow, it is melting away thanks to the sun. There is only a little over an inch out there now., except where the snow was shoveled up. It is due tp rain again this week.... maybe this time?????
