Pardon...There will be a Break in Transmission

Mr PnP and I are taking a short trip interstate to cycle and be part of the action 

of the Tour Downunder-

(Australia's answer to the Tour De France!)



So there may be a bit of this,


 while I'm away from my machine.....

Yes... I'm a leftie!

and maybe some of this!


In fact I have started what I am calling my "2012 Heirloom Quilt"!

This English Paper Piecing project is going to be my long term one for this year!


At least I don't have to cut out the paper pieces!

Although they are kind of small....

each individual kite piece is 2" point to point!

This triangle piece is 3" across.

I am using this to guide me in my piecing...


And this is what I am aiming for...

"Jazz Hands" from MO2

In my enthusiasm, I have another one cut out ready to baste!


That should keep me busy on our little road trip!

See you all in a week or so!

Happy Days!

  1. Oh, my husband would be jealous. He is an avid cyclist. The Tour of California came through our town a few years ago, and we got to go down and watch them kick off a stage and it was so much fun to see all of the big teams/cyclists in person! I love the hand projects you have going, so colorful, just gorgeous. Jazz Hands is going to be amazing!

  16. We are putting on some lovely weather for you. I wonder if you are going to all the events, perhaps you are cycling in the community events? I see you are basting your pieces with thread you should try glue it will cut down your time on preparation which means more time for piecing.
