I’m madly trying to get this paper pieced wallhanging finished in time for Christmas. I’m loving it so far.
The pattern is by Eileen B Sullivan and I’m making it all in solids – 4 shades of yellow, 4 shades of green and a nice sunny-day kind of blue sky background.
So this one will be for my Mum for Christmas. I was so busy congratulating myself on how well I was doing and how little I had left, that I didn’t even notice until I went to join the pieces together that I did this:
Nope, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That is in fact a half green/half yellow daffodil. Poo. Actually I probably said something a bit stronger than that but for the sake of this blog… Poo.
So I think I’ll be hanging out with my trusty seam ripper tonight unpicking all that and hoping to goodness I can salvage the paper pieces as I don’t have another copy of the pattern. Again I say poo.
But hey, at least I’ve made progress since last week! And I really don’t have too much left of the actual piecing to finish it off.
My other big WiP is of the bloggy kind. I mentioned the other day that I am planning a sewing themed paper pieced BoM (that’s a mouthful I know!) for next year. Well I have gotten a bit more organised and set up a page and a button for it (even managed the grab box code for it, fingers crossed I did it right – check it out in the sidebar).
Pop by, check it out and feel free to spread the word! I’m looking forward to some paper piecing with bloggy friends!
