Tonight's progress

The housework can wait til tomorrow. I have appliqued the house on my little Red Home pincushion tonight.

The instructions said to do the stitching before the appliqué, but I have done it the other way round. Which do you do first?
Rather stupidly I have cut it out before the appliqué and stitching, so I hope the shape and size doesn't change too much. I'll see how it goes.

  1. WOW ... I'm working on this also ...I do the applique, then stitching ... I'm playing with the hexies ...
    Happy stitching, P

  2. I'm like you, usually to do the applique first. I'm sure it will be fine.

  3. That's looking lovely. I would dump the housework too.
    I am not sure what I would do first. I seem to be rushing and doing everything back to front lately.

  4. A wonderful Block.

    Greetings Manuela

  5. I wouldn't have thought it would make too much difference in which you would do first...I think I would do the applique first too. Good idea about doing the housework'll have something to show for it and besides, the housework never seems to go away anyway. Seems like there's always something to do! Happy Stitching Susan!

  6. what a sweet block... I tend to applique first but I wouldn't think it makes too much difference to the end result...

  7. Housework? it will still be there whenever you get back to it! Lovely little house. Will this accompany the hexies?

  8. yep housework can wait Susan,this is going to look great.xx

  9. I do the applique first and then I can iron the weaveline/whisperweft (whatever you use to back the stitching) on after.
    Must get that book - I love making pinsuchions. ( am making a turtle now)

  10. Yep sewing waits for noone lol...cute litle house..will be a gorgeous pin cushion.

  11. Oh so cute! Makes sense to me to do the applique first.. then you have something to hold onto while you stitch! x Lea

  12. The housework can wait for sure....applique then stitching I think...looking good...

  13. Super cute little house. I usually do the applique first and then the stitching but I don't think there are any rules.

  14. I working my way through a backlog of blogs .... can you tell :o) I do the same, applique first then stitching. :o) hugs
