Amidst all my Christmas sewing of late, I have not gotten around to much paper piecing. Shocking I know! So of course I had to remedy that and get at least one paper pieced block made!
I decided on a paper pieced pattern for my last Bee block of 2013! The Queen Bee, Kate, requested red and white solids – and any pattern of our choice. Sometimes, too much choice is a bad thing. I spent over an hour trying to choose a pattern to make! I finally settled on a modified Florida Star (I left the corner sections off to keep this fairly simple – I was inspired by this one!).
Annddd I just realised I reversed the colours on the centre square haha! But anyways – I like it so we’ll pretend I did that totally on purpose
That’s me for paper piecing this week! But I must share another little bit of excitement. I recently won one of the big giveaways on Kate Spain’s blog. I entered, then completely forgot about it, not thinking I’d win. Then I got a fabulous email from Pete Spain telling me I scored the organisational package! It just arrived and oh boy was it exciting!
This little box was chock-a-block full of Kate Spain awesomeness! Notecards, shopping lists, notepads, photo album, calendar, pen, emery boards, folders, lions and tigers and bears, oh my! (Ok no lions or tigers or even bears – was just seeing if you were still reading!).
Seriously spoilt! It’s totally made my day! A huge thank you to Pete and Kate Spain for the super-generous giveaway! It was like early Christmas at my house! You can see my little helper in the background was super keen to help out
