  1. Hi. I love your paper piecing. It's just perfect. I'm going to try that one day. And the primrose blooms are so sweet. I don't remember ever having seen one, but I'm sure it brightens up those cold days - -12 degrees and you went for a walk?!!

  2. Becky, -12.0 °C is about +10.0 °F. So it´s freezing and it felt even colder with the wind but it´s not soooo bad. This week it will be -21.0 °C which is about -6.0 °F. Now I´m looking forward to our summers with temperatures up to +36.0 °C (about +96.8 °F) but ask me then! :-)
    Concerning the paperpiecing there will be a tutorial for the templates here soon!

  3. Oh, 10 degrees F is PLENTY cold to me. We're having temperatures in the 70s (F) this month, and the flowering trees are already blooming. It's sad because I know we'll have more cold weather, and the flowers will die. I can't say I don't enjoy it though!

    I'll watch for your tutorial and maybe make some of sweet spring star blossoms.
