Story Book Challenge

Have pretty much figured out the little wallhanging I spoke of in an earlier post. This will be the applique featured in each of the blue blocks......this one is partially buttonhole stitched. I am so glad I did not go for the 120 little tiny circles (actually there would have been 135 counting the centers) and decided to go for this pattern. Coincidently this is called "Topeka Rose" so a shoutout to an old home town.
One of the three nursery rhymes - of course, Mary, Mary. This is not quite ready for applique yet and needs some tweaking. Want to find a different color for her arm since it doesn't show up well on the yellow. I really do pretty much like the colors, though. Am going with Little Bo Peep and Jack and Jill. They will follow along later. (Click to enlarge)
