Either way, I did it today!!
Paper piecing that is…
To be perfectly honest paper piecing has never grown on me. I’ve always found it pretty tedious and it’s never come naturally for my poor brain.
But like it or not one of my Sew & Bee-Happy friends Hilary requested a paper pieced block for her August month.
I will neither confirm nor deny whether one of the main reasons I’m late with this block is because it was paper pieced…
Me, procrastinate?! Surely not 😉
I was anticipating a battle and lots of unpicking action but as it happened by some small miracle it all went pretty flawlessly.
Only 1 small seam needed unpicking – of course it was the last piece just as I was getting cocky & to the bottom of my beer.
What is it they say – pride comes before a fall right?!
But the main thing is that I did it. Woop!
And it wasn’t so much like having a tooth pulled as I thought it might be….
I love the block design. Hilary did pick a great block. Even if it was paper pieced.
I think I’m now officially up to Septembers bee blocks.
3 days left to go of September. Hmmm… Think I’ll make it?
I guess it’s just as well that we have no plans tomorrow & miserable weather is forecast!
Do you dislike paper piecing as much as me?
Tell me I’m not the only one who just can’t seem to wrap her head around it… Please!
