Oh dear

As I said in my previous post 2012 is going to be the year of using up my scraps as well as trying to master paper piecing. After watching numerous you-tube clips and reading books and magazines I felt that I was ready to tackle this head on today.

Take one

Somehow this does not look like anything that I saw on you-tube or in the books.

Take two

This is definitely nothing like what I saw on you-tube or in the books. I think I had best go and have another look to see why I have something back to front and a side missing. How hard can it be to sew fabric in numerical order I ask you. Obviously very hard for me.

Take three

Looking a little better but certainly room for improvement.

Take four

Now that is looking a whole lot better. By the time I work my way through that pile of scraps I may have worked out what all this paper piecing is about - hopefully.

Hang on - where have all these new scraps come from - I am supposed to be reducing the pile not adding to it.

I haven't tried paper piecing yet but yours looks like it's coming along nicely. Lol, your scraps seem to just be decreasing in size.
