Applique beginning

At last time to do some hand sewing, whilst waiting for a delivery. I bought the Thirteen Colonies Album quilt kit from ebay, the seller had only sewn two blocks, everything was there to finish it. I started by doing the hand applique course on craftsy with Mimi Dietrich, as I was a complete beginner. I found this class to be brilliant, as she makes it so easy.
Anyway I've started on the album quilt blocks, this is one of the repeated blocks. Colonial wreath.
I've prepped all the pieces and hope to get the flowers completed this week, then the twenty leaves.
There are more posts to come of things I've sewn this summer but I'll have to photograph them. Most of the time has been taken up with grand children and gardening. The allotment has been very productive and I really need to invest in another freezer.
