PTI Make it Monday #117- Paper Piecing

It has been faaaar too long since my last blog post. Don't get me wrong, I love posting and sharing, but time seems to get away especially when you have a toddler. My little girl turned one on my 30th birthday the other day, and so we had a huge combined birthday party. We are still recovering from it, having all been struck down with a nasty cold as well, but I just had to sit and craft today. I have a ton of housework, but I always do- and so I decided to not give a hoot, and participate in this week's make it monday! Yay for me!

Melissa Phillips of Papertrey Ink shared with us the paper piecing technique shown here

Here is my take on the challenge

Here  is a close up of the paper piecing bit

This is a fiddly technique and not for everyone, but i really enjoyed doing it- I found all the fussy cutting quite therapeutic :) 

That's all for today- I have runny noses to mop up... yes, plural!
