    I have just finished three PPing wall hangings.. finally !!

    the first one is a small hanging of a dozen Christmas ornaments....
    I had just put the sashings and first border on and was just about to add the final border when I took a really good look at it.......
    OMG, 1/2 was facing north and the 1/2 was facing south !!!!
    (all depends, could be east & west).......

    so I decided that the best thing to do was continue by making it a table topper so it can be seen right from either end of the table.

    Don't you just hate yourself when you do something so stupid ?

    #2 is a bit larger and I got this one completed without it being upside down or backwrds

    ..... this one took a long time just to find all the fabrics needed, like the grasses, the rocks and the different skies and waters..... it really was a fun project.

    #3.....I saw this one in a McCall's magazine when someone sent in their finished hanging for a "show & tell" in the mag. I fell in love with it and then started on an intense search for the pattern...no one seemed to have it...

    finally, found a lady in Pa and she sent it to me. This was made entirely from stash..and was a ball to do.

    Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

    Those are lovely! I really like the lighthouses. Can you send a link for all three of them? Pretty Please! I had to go back and look at the ornament one again. If you would not have mentioned it, I would not have noticed.

    That's it. I think we should kidnap her and hold her until she sends a link. :-)

    I love Paper Piecing, except for the mess it makes on the floor of my sewing room. I especially like the jeweled forest.

    the Christmas Ornaments was a kit by Grannie Suzannie designs, at www.Granniesuzannie.com

    The lighthouses was a pattern called the Sampler Lighthouses, also from Granniesuzannie.

    The last one as I mentioned is called the "Jeweled Forest" and I went looking but couldn't find it. I do know that it was in a December issue of McCall's Magazine and I believe that it was 2009.

    Hope that helps and thanks also for all the compliments...
    errors and all !!!!!

    You have inspired me to keep trying to squeeze pp'ing into my list of things to do. Your lighthouse panel is very, very nice but the Jeweled Forest takes my breath away. I love those colors. Thanks so much for sharing. Your work is wonderful!
