I haven't done any hand piecing or applique in such a long time but I guess I still remember how to do it. Two of these little blocks needed some special treatment - the pink and black one was hand pieced and the red and black one needed the little center square appliqued. I did some back basting on that little square and it seems to have worked out well enough.
Yesterday when I was walking Peanut I just started feeling so much better and much more optimistic about the situation we are all living in. Spring is coming and the sun was shining and even though it was still cold the temps were warmer and the wind wasn't as blustery. Spring is always so welcome after a long cold winter but it seems to be even more important this year.
