I attended Penny's paper-piecing workshop! And it was great!
The ladies who attended were wonderful. We had a great time and laughed a lot.
The food was completely amazing, which, of course means that my pants are fitting a bit tighter. But I don't care!
And, the main thing, I aquired some paper-piecing skills.
Penny's Kitchenaid block is one of my all-time favorites. It's such a charming block and I just love the vintage-y feel the block has with the right fabrics. It's a possibility that I over-pinked my block, but I am pretty happy with it, as is.
I also made a little strawberry soda block. I suppose it looks a bit like watermelon with the green glass, but it really is strawberry.
And last but not least is my very own design which is trying really hard to become a cherry pie. It would be done by now if I hadn't cut the patchworked cherries too short. I just need to add one more row and this one will be done too.
I hope to have some finished pictures soon!
All in all, the retreat was wonderful and I am so glad that I attended. I am so thankful to Penny for sharing her mad skills with me!
