A little piecing....

Today finds me totally engrossed in something completely new.
... I'm paper piecing...
... and it's so much fun....
... and so incredibly easy...
... and so fast...
I love it!
I adore it!
Have you ever tried Paper Piecing?  
What is it? Well, it's where you take a paper piece(!), in my case a hexagon, fold over the fabric, baste the fabric in place then join to another piece using a simple whip stitch. Once they are all joined, you take out the basting & the paper and you end up with a very cute hexagon flower (in my case). You can then make lots more and join them together to make a quilt or use it as an applique - which is what I'll think I'll do with mine.

Like it, well stay tuned as I'm going to have some sample kits to giveaway in about a month or so, then you can try it for yourself!!
