TNT Thursday

So I have done a few new things, and I want to link up to Melissa's TNT Thursday!!! :)



Some of these, you've seen - but I forgot to credit my new acheivements. One is a small thing, but a NEW thing, so here we go!

First - a few weeks ago I made my own paper piecing pattern for the Beejeebers!

Beejeebers - January wonky house Word.

Second - this week, I FINISHED my first needle-turn applique block!

SBS block 21 - Topeka Rose

Yea!

Last - yesterday I ordered fabric online for my daughter's baptism dress. Now, I have ordered fabric online before - but not SILK!!!


That's right folks. The princess is getting Dupioni Silk. I've never worked with it before, never bought it before, and I am scared to death of ruining such delicious fabric.  :) Wish me luck!

Happy TNT Thursday! Here's to trying new things!!

Oh my! Well, just go into with the attitude that it's fabric (fabric that you treat with kid gloves!). Can't wait to see it!

Congratulations on making your own paper piecing patten, I want to do that soon too. The beautiful silk is just fabric, you can do it. I expect there are some tricks and that you have read up on them. Oh, and the applique is lovely.
