Just Crafty



I have become somewhat obsessed lately with English Paper Piecing. I am sewing hundreds of little 'hexes' together to form a Grandmothers Flower Garden Wall Hanging. It will hang above my stairs and hopefully loook beautiful.
It is a labor of love as is any had stitched piece. The beauty of English Paper Piecing is that it is portable. It has been with me all over the west. It is a perfect project to while away the hours on a long car ride. It can even be taken on planes.
I like to stitch a few moments in the morning when the sun comes through the window. Everything look better in natural light. While I still have a long way to go I'm happy with my progress on my Grandmothers Flower Garden.

Wow! I am impressed. I tried paper piecing once, it wasn't for me... but if it turned out that beautiful, I might be tempted to try again.
