I got this block finished earlier in the week, before the rush of Christmas festivities really start.
Luckily Sharon chose and easier block for this month.
...remember that little foundation piecing project I mentioned in my last post???
Well, I chickened out! Lol Foundation piecing just does my head in with all the flipping of fabric and making sure you have all the pieces and seams covered! I did make a practice piece with scrap fabric. It turned out veeerrry wonky, and the fabric I wasted!!! Oh my!! Must be the (very watered down) Scot in me! Lol
So, I hand pieced it!!
My flamingo is still missing an eye and I did have to do some unsewing because I made him late at night! He is around 3 inches by 4 inches.
A little gift stitching too.
