Last week when I was fixing the one of the zodiac symbols in EQ7 I decided to try redrawing my symbol for Capricorn. I am much happier with my third version. That required making a new overlay, template and basting a new piece of fabric to the background but I am ready to start the appliqué now. I seem to be avoiding work on my Love Entwined. Not sure why. Part 3 was released yesterday and I want to get caught up. I need more fabric for the outer ring on the center compass so I can’t do any appliqué yet. The fabric is on order though. I am going to work on getting everything else prepped and ready to appliqué for when the fabric arrives.
