It's incredibly cold outside, but
Inside my sewing room the sun is shining through the windows and you'd never know it.
Especially if you find a cozy spot to curl up in.
I was going through some quilting items my aunt sent me a while back and I found these cute little paper piecing templates.
Only they're not paper--they're printed on fabric
Decided to give the sunshine a whirl.
There's something so meditative about "paper" piecing--cut, place, sew, cut, iron, cut more, place again...
You end up with funky little shapes that worry you a bit
and then everything's fine in the end.
I gotta say...I like the fabric better than paper!
No problems withe needles, tearing, and removing the paper.
You know what I just noticed?! Those are fans, not sunshines.
In my little world we'll call them sunshines :)
