I didn't get a chance to post this yesterday because Blogger was having 'issues'. But that doesn't mean I wasn't stitching! I worked on the little baskets (sorry, no photos to share) and also on the next block in the A Bountiful Life quilt.
Fruit Bounty.. or as I prefer to call it, Fruit Salad!
I had already stitched the stems and pears. Then I decided yesterday morning that I really did need to add the cherry stems. I realized without them, the cherries would just be floating out there... which doesn't make sense, right?
These stems are tiny. Made with bias bars and then placed with a few dots of basting glue to hold them in place. Too small for pins. This makes them nice and flat for stitching.
You can see from the pattern, they really needed the stems!
The pears look good enough to eat.
Have a good week & Happy Stitching!
