    Smile My first attempt at paper piecing

    I have wanted to try paper piecing for a while now, and today was the day. I downloaded a beginner block from the Carol Doak website and this is the result. Just a block to hang on the wall over my sewing machine. By no means perfect, but it is a beginning. I can see how this could become addicting. LOL
