This is what it looks like now....
The various pieces have been stitched down using one of the fancier stitches on my sewing machine (my machine is pretty basic, but there are a couple of nicer stitches to pick from). The doilies are pinned down in this picture, ready for a trip to the machine as well.
Above are a couple of close-ups of pieces I used. The little girl hanging the laundry is from a laundry bag that I was given. I absolutely adore her, but there were a number of stains which I managed to pretty much cover with some strategically placed 'bits'. The butterfly was embroidered by my maternal grandmother.
Today the quote is from Herbert Swope.... "I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody"
