Recently I volunteered to do some pattern testing for Kristy (paper piecing fiend) - more specifically to paper piece a word in a really cool font she has designed - Just my type. If you follow the link, you'll see she came up with a great idea for a charity quilt, using paper pieced words. I asked for 'kindness' as my word - thinking much more about the word and what it means rather than how many letters it has!! (I think given my lack of patience at the moment, 'hug' or 'joy' might have been a better choice).
I have only done half the word so far - going back to work has really slowed the sewing down! I can also see now that I am looking at the photo that I have sewn the N in upside down, so I guess I'll be spending a little time with my unpicker in the near future!
