Paper Piecing Tilda

It's such a relief to be back in my Craftroom, although room is an exaggeration it's 4ft by 8ft with a workbench that runs the length of the room, it used to be the coal bunker and shed that hubby put a couple of doors on the front. There's just enough room for me and everything is a hand distance away.

So to get back to cardmaking I found these scraps of October Afternoon papers and decided to use them for the paper piecing challenge on Spoonful of Sugar, again with the idea of using A6 card and to make it for normal post so it limited supplies. I hope I'm right in thinking that an A6 card is an A5 folded in half.

The hall flooring has now been removed and we just need to do the same with the dining room and it should all be ready to be screened so the new floor can be laid. The only problem my craftroom overflows slighty in the corner so need to find new home for it before hubby realises.

This is really pretty - love the papers you have used for your paper piecing. Good luck with the e floor - it will look lush when it is all done. My craft room is also 'cosy' - my 6 x6 box room, means you have to try and be tidy - amazing just how much can be fitted into the little spaces - cant wait for my new space in the loft :o)
