Well last night was Aug. FNSi. I was able to sew for a short time. But had to become an unexpected babysitter so didn't get as much accomplished as I'd hope to. However, I did get a few hours of sewing in during the afternoon before my visitor came. Can't say I'm a big fan of paper piecing this way......
I have had this cut out since January, but put away. Sew I dug it out again to get a wee bit closer to getting it accomplished. Here is what I started with....
And this is what I accomplished....
These four are completely done and ready for the next stage.
This one needs trimmed up yet
I thought this looked pretty all arranged like this. Looks like a peppermint.
Then I started getting the hang of it and decided to do all the same steps then go press seems and work on the next piece. Since I ultimately have to make 16 of the same piece before going on to the next step. Although I still think I like paper piecing using the whole pattern and sewing onto it and then ripping the pattern away. Seems less time consuming that way.
Sew I did get a little machine time in. However, there's still lots to sew.
