I have been doing a lot of English paper piecing lately. A lot for me anyway. This fabric with tiny animals is perfect for fussy cutting and the pictures fit nicely on 1" hexagons. I always wanted to make some linen hexies with embroidery and it still is on my list, but with some different designs. This time I decided to add simple writing and I am very happy with how the whole idea turned out.
I love this photo! That little hand...so sweet and dear. I was trying to take a photo for the Instagram, but my Little One had a better idea. He wanted to play. Play on top of the hexagons. Apparently, when they are stitched together they make a nice road for small cars. After a few failed attempts I decided to keep this photo. My Little One has just seen his new bib and I wish you could all hear the happy squeal he has made and started asking "What is it?", pointing his tiny finger at one picture after another and making the sounds these animals make. I think he really approves of his new bib.
