I like the idea of a small, daily project. I know I won't be able to applique a circle every day, but I can choose the fabric and maybe do the prep work. I know this project won't do anything to decrease my stash, but it will be fun to have an excuse to fondle fabric every day!
I made my first two blocks using back basting to prep the circles. I found the process to be too slow for daily use, so resorted to templates and starch to prep the circles. I found the top of a 3" Yankee Candles small tumbler candle was the perfect size template. I could use Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles templates, but I figured they would not hold up to such intense use. I'm going to use plain cardstock for now and see how it goes.
I haven't stitched today's circle, but I picked this fabric to reflect my mood and because it's been in the stash since 2001 and never been cut. It's one of those blue fabrics that just doesn't play well with others, but is still a charming fabric that needs to be used (it's more blue than the picture reflects).
Here are my other blocks to date. My camera is still on the disabled list. I need to get it back in operation, 'cuz the cell phone just doesn't take great pictures. Hope to check in next week with lots more blocks!
