Too scared to take the next step ........

OK - I know I can do this but still .........

Here is my first BOM of the Storybook Farm, Pork it Over - which I am very pleased with up to now.  So what is the problem?  Well, this is when I am supposed to start doing the appliquet and THAT is where I have come to a grinding halt - too scared to take the next step - literally putting foot to the pedal!

See how they evolve from - laying out on the appliquet sheet with the placement guide underneath .......

.... and now over the guide to add more pieces .... putting shape to the piggies ....

To the left are the three piglets done minus their faces and the centre photo, getting ready to go under the needle ...... which is where the hold-up is!!

All threaded up and rearing to go but not enough courage to put the foot to the pedal

And that is where a lifesaver called Sally steps in to the rescue!  The advise given is to practice, practice and more practice .... then .... when enough courage has built up ..... put the block under the needle!  Ooooohhhhh, do I have to?????
Watch this space to see what happens!

Thanks, Saddle, for answering my SOS on a Saturday evening!!

Warm regards
