Patchwork paper pieces

I have been mean in the blogging dept lately. Sorry about that. 

My camera fizzled out and doesn’t play ball anymore. A rather nice person from the local recycling group gave me another, it’s only 1mp but the pictures aren’t too bad. It’s a very old one, large and heavy man! No complaints, just large muscles! – At least we have pictures 😉

I have been learning how to do patchwork paper piecing. Here is the evidence! This is going to be a turtle cushion for the little fellow. He has been watching me stitch it all by hand.

What should (if I had a normal hand), take about a quarter of the time that I have taken.
I can only do a few minutes at a time unless I want a lot of pain for the rest of the day. It’s infuriating. I want to get going with it…..

This is going to be my pillowcase for the crochet along. I’m aware that i’m running well behind schedule but never mind. I really wanted to patchwork it and it makes me happy to know that I will get there in the end! You will find part 2 lots of fun, making the pillowcase itself.

I have been taking many long walks with the dog to walk off the winter podge. It gives me a lift, being out in the open – almost as much as sewing does!
