THAT was some labor-intensive fusing!!  HAHA  Can I tell you how THANKFUL I am that I got the kit?!!!  That would've been a lot of tracing and cutting and... (I'm shuddering just thinking about it).  Of course, it's not trimmed or stitched down yet.  Can you see the gator in the water?  Such great little touches in this one!!!

Just had to share!

Sandusky and Lake Erie

Two more rows assembled (but not yet stitched down) today.  I had planned on doing one of the paper-pieced rows but that didn't happen.   These two haven't been trimmed or added onto yet either so still a bit of work and I'm NOT looking forward to stitching down the fused pieces on the Sandusky row...arghhhh!

My little foxes

This is my little foxes row from Appleton, WI (they are blind and mute at the moment but that will be rectified soon!!).  Aren't they CUTE?  Just got the kit today, had to trace everything onto fusible then cut out, place and fuse.  I'm going to try to work on one or two of the paper-pieced rows this evening.  We'll see how that works out.  YIKES, I just noticed the white inner ear part on the far left fox is missing but I fused it.  It's probably on the bottom of my iron :-(

Two more rows

Underwater fish and turtles through portholes and the running of the horses!!!  The stitching on all those horse pieces is really scaring me (all the pieces are just fused right now)!!!  I got the heron finished as well and want to get busy and get another row cut and maybe put together.

Row by Row and more

I've been collecting row by row patterns, kits and plates via fellow swappers, family & friends.  I've started on the first two.  The umbrellas are fused but still need to be stitched down.  And I've gotten the sky portion of my heron vertical row and now need to get the water done.  The heron is ready to be placed as soon as the background is complete.
And I finally got my cute little alphabet quilt back from the longarmer.  SO cute and just in time for back to school!  HA!!  Now I need to get busy with the binding.  But that may wait a bit while I get a couple more rows done!!
