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

Paper Piecing... Again :)
Week 5 of the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse QAL has been a little more frustrating than the previous weeks, starting with printing off the pattern. For some reason the printer decided to not print them off in landscape TWICE which wasted a good amount of Foundation Paper Piecing paper (both sides, because after the first attempt I flipped the paper over. Then there were some missing pieces, which Janeen very quickly sorted for me. Sewing the lighthouse reflection proved difficult because I opted to change the colors, which confused me to no end and the results are a lighthouse top that looks spikey. LOL I'm not changing it. I made one change early on and found that changing two small pieces in the middle of a paper pieced unit is NOT fun. It would easier to do the parts I don't like over completely, and after the hours already put in, that ain't happening either. I still love it, so roll on Week 6
