Bringing Meadow Breeze Mystery back to life. . .

Waaay back in May, 2010 I began a Pat Sloan mystery, Meadow Breeze.  Although Pat Sloan machine stitched her mystery, I decided to make mine a hand project and to use felted wool and wool felt that I had on hand.  Hence its non-completion.  I am currently in a residence transition and don't have much time on my sewing machine.  Therefore, I thought this would be a great opportunity to bring out this UFO (one of many mind you).  Upon pulling it out, I realized that I had stopped progress on it because it needed some background sewn on which to put the applique so I've worked hard to complete the sewing in the limited time on my machine.
I added the border to the center panel of applique.  There will be more applique added to the entire border.
There are eight of these sections that each have applique and will be added to the center panel once the applique is complete.
This square is ready to be hand stitched and is one of the four outer cornerstones.  I'm not sure how quick I'll be on all of this but any progress is better than no progress :).
