WIP 07/16/17 Woodland Themed Afghan – Lake Mountain Trail Applique

Whoo Hoo! I finished the little mountain applique that was giving me fits a few weeks ago. I totally abandoned the first prototype and went with something a little different and it came off my hook wonderfully! I wasn’t planning on the little extras but I’m glad I did them as they add so much more detail to the scene. Β πŸ™‚
