More Progress

Today was a much better day paper-piecing blocks.  I'm using larger pieces of fabric and trimming the excess rather than trying to make smaller pieces fit.  Much less frustrating.  Also in the photo are the three hexies I sewed last night.

Hope you had a good day.

No Compliments Please

I received such nice comments on the paper-pieced blocks I sewed the other day that I was feeling pretty smug about how well they went together and no mistakes in them.  Since then I've had nothing but trouble and the mistakes weren't noticed until the blocks were completed.  Grrrrrrr!  I ended up changing the blocks a little to repair rather than unsew a number of steps back.  I'm okay with it and if I don't tell you which blocks they are, you probably won't be able to pick them out.  I did manage to complete two without a problem.  Let's hope that means I'm back on a roll.

You can see that Bailey is really upset with sewing trials and tribulations.

I finished a pair of socks I started last week.

Hope you had a good day.

More Paper Piecing

I love my sewing room.  I've been taking my iPad (Netflix), coffee and Bailey in with me and have been enjoying being able to sew again.  I'm totally taken with the book, 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks by Carol Doak.  I've finished a few more that I thought you might enjoy.

And last but not least.... my helper.

Hope you had a good day.
