Strawberries

I am FINALLY working on the last block for my fruit and vege quilt, the strawberries. There's not much to see right now as when you applique, you work from the back to the front, but this is the progress so far...
There will be another row of strawberries and then the bowl. The dark blue is the shadow of the back of the bowl.

Tomorrow I will hopefully get the rest of the strawberries done, then the bowl. I will then be ready to get this quilt put together!

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts on yesterday's post - my eye is SO much better today! I went to an Instacare last night as it felt like my cornea was scratched and I couldn't function - it was so sore! But after dye and a black light, the doctor said there was no scratch, and he suspected that a stye was forming under the eyelid. I was told I wasn't allowed to wear my contacts until it got better. I wasn't happy about that, as I only wear my glasses in bed to watch TV, and walking/driving in them is near impossible - I have no depth perception in them at all! I was prescribed an antibiotic, and lo and behold, I woke up this morning with no pain at all! Disaster averted! Now that I can see again, the quilting can continue!
