The second workshop led by Ami Simms last week involved a technique she calls invisible applique. It can also be used for hand piecing and is especially helpful when doing blocks with inset seams. Last night I finished the sample block we were working on in class. I have not pressed it nor done a final trim on the outside edges because I’m not sure if I will do anything more with it or incorporate it into a project.
Yesterday we had a major rain event. After the tornado and severe thunder storm warnings were downgraded to watches (we did spend time in our designated safe place), I ventured outside with my camera.
The run off will continue for several days, but Lake Buchanan is now reported at 41% full and Lake Travis has risen to 65%. Sadly, the floods also brought loss of life with several people still reported missing.
