Blocks two and three

I have to say, I really enjoyed myself on Monday, sewing together not one but two blocks for my spring sprouts.
As I said, the kit Tony purchased for me has every thing in it, even pre cut applique pieces. Wonderful.
It's just a matter of following the placement guides in the pattern.
Decide if it's a leaf, a petal, a bud or a stem.
Then applique into place.
The nature of the beautiful batiks chosen for this project do make some of the decisions a little tricky.
I'm sure those two blue leaf//petal shapes at the top are leaves, not blue petals, with a green flower bud? That's the way I went anyway, and I'm not going back now!
I did think about getting a neutral thread for all of the applique....
Nah!! Love working with all the pretty jewel tones and the leaves are all done in green!! 
I don't know if I'll have time to do another block today.
Maybe if I do find crafty time, I'll pick up my cross stitch.

Lovely Batiks. You are doing a good job there. ( Are you using stabiliser on the back? )It is already reminding me of the big flower quilt ( Kim McCLean ) I made, that drove me nuts till I decided to machine attache rather than needle turn it. It would never have got finished if I hadn't changed.
