Back in the saddle again!

I am so ready to SEW!!!! I decided the best way to tackle this would be to take small steps and have guidance.  I love paper piecing and it has lines to follow so I cannot mess it up...right?



I picked up the newest issue of American Patchwork &Quilting at Costco last week

I found my inspiration to make something! Small and manageable with no worries if I mess up since it will be staying with me! These are seriously SO DANG CUTE!!!!


I was VERY careful using the sharp scissors and managed to keep all my other digits safe from harm!!!! I had some Kate Spain 12 Days of Christmas still waiting to be loved and knew this was the perfect project for those lovely pieces of fabric!

My first attempt

My second attempt

I have learned that I cannot sew a straight line yet even when it is printed on the paper,LOL :o)  I also realized that my left index finger is very important to my sewing!!!! I will practice more so that I can hurry up and get my bee blocks completed.  Those require a little more perfection than I can manage at the moment.

Very sweet little project! Don't you hate when something seems so little and easy - not!

They look lovely - stop being so picky, or that finger won't heal!

Glad to see your back to tackling what caused your injury. You will win!! I pulled out my 12 days scraps today too.... great minds, they say....

I just picked up the Sew Scrappy Quilt magazine, too; mostly because of the cover picture. I have figured out that if I keep five squares of every fabric I use, eventually I will have enough to make this quilt. Not one of the shapes is identical to another and I like that the most.
