Sigh, but you know my will power is zilch. I've signed up for this block of the month. For $10 at the moment, you receive a paper pieced pattern for a star on the first of every month in both 12" and 6" finished sizes. I'm thinking a pale grey plain background and some Aneela Hoey prints I got at a bargain price from The Fat Quarter Shop.
Tomorrow I will be loading my tree skirt onto my long arm to do some freehand swirls to compliment the white background fabric.
