Busy, Busy, Busy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been busy with the Applique Guild!  We picked fabric at the last meeting.  
I have made the kits and about 4 are still waiting for pick up.  
That's done.
I missed another family reunion this year.  
Our next one is 2017.  I will be ready. 
I got this picture from my aunt about 3 years ago 
and I have wanted to make it into an embroidery.

Here is my drawing!!
What do you think?


I have to stay on task in order to have the quilt 
done by Summer 2017.
I don't know what blocks I want to build around it, 
but I know I want everyone to sign it!
Any suggestions?

Have a wonderful week!!!!
