One flower Wednesday here again

hi ya all,,,,,,I just dont know where the time goes...Wednesday again and I did manage to get a couple of flowers made for my garden...

As I was away for a few weeks I didnt get much sewing done.I have dug out my "Gollyville" that I started some years ago...but as you can see each piece has to be pieced together and appliqued and beleive me with the hare little needle needed to stitch around every little piece my fingers are never the same...
This is only 1/3 of the way takes me a full day to copy cut arrange iron ...then the sewing part takes some time..I cant sit still long enough to do it all in one
tata for now..
