More Brr Great Piecing

   Another very cold week coming up. It's said it hasn't been the cold for this long since 1989. 1989! That's when I was driving back and forth between Okotoks and Calgary. How soon we forget. 

However, what great weather to bunk in and sew to your heart's content. And, this is exactly what happened. I managed to get all the Splendid Sampler II blocks completed! But in keeping with the schedule here is my version, Sunny Side Up, of this week's blocks.

   It would have been fabulous making Lots O Hexies, by Yvonne at Olfa, while sitting at the Coastline (eating) Sponge Cake, by Katarina Roccella.

Next is Stitch-N-Paws, by Richy Lainson, with Sunbonnet Me To You, by Jane Davidson.

It was tricky making the paws look like the template. My tip is to trace the paws on the fusible paper, fuse to fabric, carefully cut out the toes and pad, use the cut out template to place the pieces in the holes, use the tip of the iron on the tiny pieces just enough to stick down, very carefully remove the template and do the final iron to fuse to the background.
