Took a class at the LQS on hand piecing. I have always said I do not have the patience or the inclination to learn how to do this. When I signed up for this class I was thinking it was a hand applique class...was checking on the supplies and reading the little sheet they give out and discovered it was piecing! Imagine my surprise....LOL Well I went ahead and took the class and found out it isn't as bad as I thought it would be! We used a rubber stamp to mark the fabric, which helped on time and accuracy. Here is my first attempt..it isn't perfect, but it isn't bad either. Now if I could just get the hang of threading that darn small needle!
