Greetings Everyone and Welcome,
This lovely hop was the brain child of Madame Samm and Soma, creators of the lovely paper piecing pattern. I must admit that I struggle with paper piecing. For some reason I can never get the fabric size right and I end up un-sewing way too often.
So on to my adventure! First up is the heart. My DgD loves loves pink, purple and hearts. I did not think she would understand the arrow so I adapted the heart to stand alone. Woot woot so far so good. I used it to make a sweet apron from the tutorial offered by Amanda.
|We both love the way this came out - win!|
Then I started work on the O (is that a hug or a kiss?). Humm something seems to be amiss.....
Yikes. how could I not have seen this?????? I was running out of fabric as I am trying to work from my stash. For some reason I thought I had a lot more of these two fabrics than I did. So some fancy un-sewing, ripping and cutting ensued.
And then the X
I seem to have odd luck every time I sign up for one of these hops. Just when I was going for a re-do I broke my elbow. Yup painful and limiting. Surgery in a couple of days.
So this will be it this time around for me. Enjoy the other hoppers!
