So, what was I going to do? After a little while, a thought struck me - something appliqued! I was a little nervous about this as my friend does beautiful applique but I figured I would give it a go and if it went pear-shaped, I'd just try something else.
The fabric used for the applique was some Saffron Craig fabric that I had purchased a few years ago but hadn't used yet.

I decided to do a baby feet applique on soft bath towels, a different colour towel for each baby. I was pretty pleased with the end result, although doing the little toes was quite difficult. I thought I was being fancy by using a variegated silky embroidery thread for the stitching, but if I could do a do-over, I would use a straight colour next time.
