My daughter is here today so I don’t have much time to chat, but I did want to show you the paper piecing blocks I did during the Scrap Happy Bee last week.  Buffie was right…I’m addicted. This is my favorite.  Isn’t that little guy cute!  Thanks Buffie for that center square.  She has been collecting focus fabrics for a while and has lots of cute ones, so I begged.
Here are several that I have made recently.  What fun!
I haven’t been able to do much sewing this week as my machine is in the shop.  I did drag out an old machine of my mother’s and made this Double D9 block.  I posted a link to the pattern here (see bottom of post).  I love this block and as soon and good ole’ Jenny gets back home I plan to make lots more.

This is an interesting block from the modern Quilt Guild.

Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

What?! You're addicted to Tweety? Or paper piecing?! Aack!

I do love Tweety also:)

Tweety is so cute! And I recognize some of the fabric you used in that block as some I also have, particularly the white flowers on light purple background.

The Double D9 Patch is on my list of things to try soon. Your block looks great!

Oh, your blocks are so d*** cute! I really love them! And they look so great together. I totally love them!

I have to come to GR to take my machine in. Remember when it was at the spa before? Well, now it needs to go to the hospital. Seems they didn't fix whatever it was I was worried about.....
