WIP 3/8/17 Woodland Themed Afghan – Moose Applique

I’ve gotten a good start on my woodland afghan! Here is what I have done so far… fox, moose, pine tree, bear, owl and 2 blocks each of colors. Only 50 more blocks to go!

I have to note that the moose is my own… I wanted something a little less round-faced than what the afghan series pattern was. Mine kept turning out looking like a bull cow instead of a bull moose! 🙂 Anyways, I posted how I made my moose further down in this blog.

Pardon my pictures but the only camera I have is on my cell phone, therefore my colors are a little off in my pictures. Like my chocolate brown and my green look black and you can’t tell my moose has eyes. Ugh! I dream of one day having one of those fancy digital cameras. 🙂

 

Ok, enough. Here is my very first applique!
