Design Wall Monday - Reverse Applique

I get so friggin proud of myself when I actually STICK to goals I set for myself.  I am, after all, my biggest critic.  But MORE so, my biggest supporter. {grin}

Ok yeah, so I do realize that I just set this goal this month...and I haven't actually jumped any kind of milestone or anything...  I finished the block I have been working on for like the past 2 months (omg, these swirly slender pieces take me so long to do)  But only a few stitches of embroidery remain to be done, so while I realize that NORMALLY, close only counts in horseshoes and hand my opinion, "close" counts in quilting too.   So I deem thee - DONE.

I've started my next block (on schedule mind you) and I'm pleasantly surprised at how this whole 'reverse applique" thing is coming.  I really thought I was going to struggle with it.   Definitely doesn't work up quick, but it works up perfect.  So I'm good with that!  

So a TRUE milestone will be that I am DONE with this block by August 5th, and starting another one.  (I secretly want to surpass that and have it done by this coming Monday...but whatever).  I like shootin high.
