Hey there — I tried my hand for the first time tonight at paper piecing…I have recently become *re-obsessed* with owls. You see, the obsession began when I decided to attend Westfield State College where the mascot is the Fighting Owls. So, I started to receive owl figurines, owl towels, owl cards, owl knick-knacks, well, you get the idea. Then, I got off owls. But recently, they have become so popular in paper crafts and, how shall I say, CUTER than they ever were, so I have a renewed interest. Paper piecing has come up in a lot of the boards I am on, so I decided to try my hand. I found a pattern from Anna Maria Horner on-line, got my paper scraps out, and I went to town. I have plans for a couple of these — friends who are having a baby have a woodland animal themed nursery and I thought I would make a photo album for them, and I will make a couple of cards for some college friends. So here they are!
Also, I wanted to let you know about some great blog candy at another Fiskateer’s site — go check it out:
