English paper piecing
This is my first attempt at english paper piecing. I started it when I was 14 and these fabrics are the scraps from clothing sewing. I see my dress and skirt, Dad's shirt, Mum's shirt and the dress and skirt of my sister. Working on my pies and tarts has made me think about my hexagons. I am enjoying the pies and tarts a lot. I find hand sewing very relaxing. I am actually getting into some sort of flow with the pies, of course that doesn't mean that I have finished November's block yet! I'll get there. I am concentrating on Christmas sewing at the moment. Actually I'm really quite enjoying it. Back to the sewing!
