Cheating on crochet....

Yep, I'm cheating on my first crafting love....and I have been all day...

Mostly because I'm working on some paper piecing... What is paper piecing? Well, it's a type of sewing/quilting that reminds me a bit of color by number.

I spent much of Thursday night pulling fabric out and cutting/finding pieces for the blocks I wanted to work on. Then Friday, since I had the day off, I spent that time sewing those pieces into quilt blocks. I'm terribly disappointed that I'm so slow at it, but I did get 2 quilt blocks done...and a 3rd started.

I would continue, however, I'm picking up my cousin tomorrow and we are going to visit an aunt of ours.  Should be a good time.

In the mean time, I have a dilemma....

One of the awesome designers for Fandom In Stitches, a site that I LOVE, has been posting patterns for Sesame Street characters.  Well, I'm working my way through it, but I'm kinda waffling between doing an actual quilt or just making them into pillows. Thoughts? (PS: FiS is an awesome site run by a very good friend of mine.)

Well, drat, I'm getting sleepy and I have to get up early tomorrow to get on the road!

Hook on!!!

  1. I SO wish I had a sewing machine so I could attempt those patterns. I've always been very intrigued with the whole paper piecing thing, but maybe now I'll need to look into machines. I've been wanting to craft something for my niece and she is a total Sesame Street freak.
