    We all went gaga last week because Delta showed off her beautiful "Jeweled Forest" blocks. For the past week everyone was hunting hot and heavy for this pattern. And some of us got lucky and got one real quick. I think I have about 12 hours in mine and I now have 9 little blocks. This is my first paper piece project. ;) Yep - it was a lot of trial and error. I am sewing and listening to a clip about PP on the computer. I listened about 5 times before it finally clicked. Of my 9 little blocks only 1 was done without having to 'rip' out one or 2 seams. This has been a real learning process. I read and took to heart all of the tut's and suggestions here on the board. Everything is helping. I can guarantee you that you really have to focus on what you are doing. All in all I like paper piecing. These things are so stinking cute I just can't stop with a tiny wall hanging. I want to mix in various sizes of the exact same pattern and litterly design a forest. So what I and everyone else want to know is what ARE YOU DOING now that you have your pattern? I am not ready for pics tonight but maybe tomorrow. So come on everyone -'fess up'. Inquiring minds want to know :D :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I never heard back from the website. Did you get a pattern through regular mail or over the Internet?

    I actually got the only magazine off of ebay. It looked like it had never been opened. Prestine condition. I would send everyone a copy if I could. PM me and I will help if I can. You know, we pay for and do instant down load of designs all the time. It is a wonder that McCalls would not be set up to do this. Especially with as many older patterns that they have published over the years. That might be a good suggestion for them. It would certainly be cost efficient for them and would make us all super happy.

    I sent an e-mail to the addy from that thread and had no response, so I copied and pasted it to my e-mail acct. the next day and got a reply back from Tricia telling me the same, they will mail them out to you with an invoice that you pay. The charge is going to be $4.

    Well everyone - I now have 16 little blocks and I probably have 18 hours into them. It is interesting that I am getting faster now and not having to remove seams. I really want to know how everyone is doing on making their blocks. I am hoping to post pics Friday night. Also I have increased the size of the pattern and my project will incorporate at least 2-4 different sizes. So come on everybody - give us an update.

    I got the pattern and am printing it out right now and going to start on it soon. I am real excited and would really like to see what everyone else is doing with it too. Want to see photos everyone..... I just love this pattern. I have had alot going on this week so did not have time to start. I am paper piecing another design as well for a block swap partner so when I am done with that will start my trees.
