Hippies and Hens!

First I have a link for the little apple girl. I remembered where I found her so here is a link to the coloring page.

Also, I am only one post away from 500 posts! I guess I am going to have to have a giveaway this weekend to celebrate.
I truly appreciate my visitors and your comments.

Today I worked a bit on my hippie piece. The last time I added a kitty, had to have one in my world;)
Today I added the words and the flower. The concert we saw was Aerosmith and Dream on is their first song and I do love that one. My notes look a bit wonky, lol. I had cut the pieces, so all of the new things are freehand. Now I need to add a face and some ruffles for a collar and sleeves. Not that I ever wore things like that, lol. The funky colors I am using are some precuts that I ordered years ago. Will never do that without knowing what fabrics I am actually getting.

On the new pieces, I started using the regular weight wonder under. It is much easier to sew by hand, but it is harder to peel the paper off. I like being able to iron on the pieces instead of pinning them.



Then I finished off a little pillow. I used my new Spring Chicken design. As you can see, it is not good to stitch while watching a good movie, I was not paying attention to my stitching;)
