And another lucky thing happened...I found my paper pieced blocks that I started piecing at quilt retreat, which I had "lost" in packing/unpacking after the retreat! For some strange reason I left them in a quilting magazine I was reading at retreat and found them this week when I picked up the magazine to finish reading it.
I had started paper piecing the word "winter" to include in my winter wallhanging that I have been working on for years. (You can read about that quilt and see some of the quilt blocks here.) I am using the letter patterns from Wendy Vosters website (which are free!). You can download those here. As you can see I have only finished half of the word, so now I will go ahead and finish the rest of the letters.
