Cactus Rose

Where do I begin!!!??? Well, Happy 2009 to all! Whew, this is the first day in 2 months that I have actually sat at my "Bernie" and put the pedal down! Yay! Our Christmas Tree farm has consumed me right up until 3 days before the Blessed Jesus's Birthday! Then it took over a week until today to get the " old bod" in high gear again! So...I put a pot roast in the oven and set the "delay start" timer and made a cup of tea and off to my sewing room I dashed!! These photos are of my last mini paper piecing project class hence "Cactus Rose" that was started in November. I'll try to have them in sequential order, but you'll get the idea I am sure! They trim up to 2 inch squares!!! The next process is to put'em together and frame them with a great fabric that I have not yet choosen from my stash or dashed to the "local fabric den" to purchase! Of which I just may have to force myself to do! I recieved a great present from one of the local "fabric dens". My mini class resumes this coming week and as this is my Bday month I was sent a 30% off coupon for any fabric cut from a bolt at the store where I attend the class!! Geez, can you imagine that!!! I hope you can click on the photos to see them up-close and personal!
