My obsessions on both sides of the Atlantic, quilting being the top one at the moment.

This Side of the Pond Catch Up
I was able to get caught up with the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse QAL, hosted by Janeen at Quilt Art Designs after finally getting a hold of some foundation paper, not as nice as the last package I had but better than printer paper. The shop in Midsomer Norton didn't have a clue what I was talking about... not sure if my 'accent' had anything to do with it or not and I didn't like the brand that Midsomer Quilting in Chilcompton had so Amazon it was. Fabric arrived from Online Quilting last Monday and the paper arrived on Tuesday so I was off on Week 1 just as the pattern for Week 2 arrived in my inbox last Wednesday. No sewing over the weekend as I was in Cambridge :) I got Week 2 done and attached to Week 1 this afternoon. Doesn't look like much yet... unless I stand back, then I can sort of... almost... see rocks. ;) Week 2 certainly went smoother than Week 1, not sure if it's because the more Paper Piecing I do the less I have to think about it... or if I work better with smaller units? There are a few mess ups... but they add character :)
