Peg Solitaire Board and a 365 Challenge Update

This is a picture of my Peg Solitaire Board from Alida (TweLoQ) Designs. She is running a QAL (Quilt Along) and publishes a free pattern each month. For more information, check it out here.
I have several grandchildren who (I'm hoping) will enjoy playing with these game boards. I made this one using fusible applique. Each circle is fused to the background with a hand-embroidered blanket stitch around it.

This is the latest picture of my 365 Challenge. (I do have some other blocks finished. I'll post those later.) Check out the 365 Challenge website here if you are interested. I am still really enjoying this challenge. I have missed piecing, and I there are definitely times when I need some "mindless" piecing time. It is a good stress reliever for me.

I just got back from a three-day retreat with a friend of mine. I'll be posting about it later. Be sure to check back.

You have been busy. I like the way the bottom quilt is coming along. Can't wait to hear about your retreat.

Oooh, retreat news! I live vicariously. LOL Love both of your photographed projects. Your 365 is different from anyone else's I've seen.
