I am using different neutral batiks in 3 inch strips sewn together. The stem is a one inch strip of fabric that I ironed in half than sewed it with the raw edge toward the middle seam. After it was stitched, I pressed it over the seam and then did the invisible machine applique stitch with the invisible thread. Have cut lots and lots of leaves and will need lots more. Doing my usual machine buttonhole stitch on them.
Here are two more strips lying on either side of the one I have made. I am also planning to put a strip of something or other between each of the vine strips. Have not decided what that will be yet. Kind of deciding as I go along.
I called my doctor's office yesterday and was so happy to find that it is iron deficiency anemia that had me feeling so sluggish and tired. The treatment is the iron supplement with a blood test in three months to check it out. That was good news.
