Appliqued Hollyhocks...

I did it! Woohoo!!! I got my last hollyhock stem/flowers stuck down today. Just the 2 hummingbirds to go, but I think I will machine applique what I have here so far, and then put the hummingbirds on... 8-)
Last week friend Sb gave me a bag full of old jeans for me to cut up and use as I please... There are 9 pairs there... Thanks a bunch Sb!!! 8-)
