I was snowed in yesterday and it was like finding a whole delicious decadent day to indulge in my greatest love.....stitchery!!!! So I spent the entire day stitching "packets" of hanky quarters. Since I wanted lots of extra lace, each hanky quarter was layered 3-5 deep which made it cumbersome to shift them about for placement. So I added all the layers to each and stitched them together into "packets". This allowed me to move them about easily and I was able to trim off the excess fabric of the underneath hankies..
Now they are just laying on the foundation approximately where I want them and I can begin to fine tune the arrangement....add MORE lace and more hankies... I have started on the additional 6 bluebirds.
