Just Magnolia - Paper Piecing

When it works well, technology can be wonderful ....... but when it won't play the game, there is nothing more frustrating!  Computers - aarrrrgh!

Anyhoo, got that out of my system - let's hope I can post this now.  This is my second post today, please scroll down for the earlier one.

Over at JUST MAGNOLIA this week the girls are asking for paper piecing so I had a good old rummage through my scraps box. 

Love this laying down Tilda, she looks so chilled out.  Scraps of paper for her clothing, the rest of her coloured with ProMarkers, Edwardian Country Lady paper for the background (as I had the pad out) and a scrap of Basic Grey punched with Martha Stewart for her to lie on.  Note to self - domed flowers don't work on a dark background!  The orange flower is much more orange really but the colour just disappeared once it was stuck. 

Have remembered to take the cheesecakes out of the freezer to defrost for tonight - just hope I don't get caught in a downpour with them!

Hugs Sxx
