    Thanks for all your kind comments. This is the very first thing I have ever appliqued. It has taught me how to speak in Pirate.

    Cathryn, when I did those vines, I just did the blanket stitch, as that is what I did around everything else. Well, yesterday while I was finishing all the stitching around the pieces, I got to another piece that the blanket stitch just would not work on, so I took it upon myself to just straight stitch just inside the edges and it looks fine. I wish I'd have done that w/the vines because it would have looked better. I found out it is not fun to rip out the blanket stitch on applique, so I will leave it. If I didn't, I'd be speaking advanced Pirate!!
