    at first I was really intimidated, but then it started to click. was kind of fun, except I didn't remove all of the paper from the back. :oops: Left it to provide some 'stability'. :D

    and i forgot to put the hanging sleeve on the back. i was so anxious to get it done. it needs to be in new zealand for Christmas!

    Thats lovely, cant believe its your first paper piece, I tend to use stitch and tear instead of paper and leave that in for stability. :)

    thanks ladies!

    actually, i used something called 'fundation'. it looks like webbing, but the smaller pieces still didn't want to tear out without pulling stitches.

    Yaaay! Fun, isn't it? I found that Christmas tree pattern too, and if it wasn't so big I would have made a lot of them this year. So I've got next years' projects lined up already :lol:


    I love your color choices. Great job!

    That really is cute. It really looks like you did an excellent job on your first effort at paper piecing. I think I'm going to have to give pp a try, I've seen so many wonderful things on here that are done with that method.
