But at home I've been de-stressing by doing a spot of English Paper Piecing. I downloaded the wafers templates and colouring sheet you can get from Nellies Niceties Etsy Shop (for the bargain price of £1). Then I had a rummage through my over spilling scrap box. I fancied using some jewel bright colours and a spot of purple Klona I had left over from some other project. Hand sewing Klona can be a little hard on the fingers as it has a stiffer texture than Kona. But I'm loving the bright pops of colour.
Inspired by all the lovely English Paper Pieced cushions that Reene keeps churning out, this is destined to become a cushion too. My house - believe it or not- is woefully short of pretty cushions! I'm also back on the fabric diet as it's an expensive time of year for me and I think now is the perfect time to be shopping my stash.
