from winter to spring

This winter I took a "no sew" applique class in town.  Yes, I'm into classes, they are fun, it gets me out, and I learn things I've not done before.  All I had to do in this class, was trace, cut, and iron, it was that easy and so much fun. 


I hung it in my hallway this winter and loved it so much, that I decided to get another one for the spring and this one I did over the weekend, while Jim was outside chopping wood and keeping the boil going on the evaporator, I was inside working on this.


First off I had to read the pattern, I hate reading instructions, but read I did.

Apple blossom pattern

The fun began, by tracing the pattern,

then iron and cutting came next.

Buds and leaves

Placing the pieces and more ironing, which was really the fun part, you can see it all coming to life. 

The apple tree is budding out,

and the apple blossoms are in full bloom.

I had hoped to put this one in the same frame as the winter one and just change them out every season, but this one is a bit smaller.  So I had to find a new frame, which I like better anyway.

Apple Blossom Country

Here's the dilemma for me.  I plan to make a summer and fall one. 

Do I keep them all up or change them each season?

What would you do?
