Happiness is . . .

. . . a free Friday, all to myself, to sew!
After sewing a few blocks together this morning,
I remembered that snow makes an excellent backdrop for fabric photos!
(eeekkk!!! just realized I need to re-do the one on the right, the right side is reversed!)
These are the first blocks in the Sister's Ten BOM series;
fabrics are Kate Spain's Central Park.

 I'm also loving Elizabeth's Lucky Stars Paper Piecing block of the month series!
 Above is the practice block;
below is the January block.
After I finished the 12" block, I realized that I had enough scraps to make the smaller sized block, too.  How great is that?!

Linking up to Friday Felicities!


  1. Your blocks look great! I never get tired of Central Park

  2. What a great way to spend Friday - felicitous indeed. Thanks for linking up!

  3. Ooh, the paper-pieced blocks are lovely! I keep telling myself I'm going to follow along a BOM series, but I always manage to forget. Maybe this is the year I jump on the train.

  4. Oh my, your blocks are gorgeous!! Definitely a great way to spend a Friday :)

  5. Yay for whole days to play, love what you made :o)

  6. WOWee!! You are super speedy Michelle! So cool that you included the Sisters' Ten BOM is your very special Friday. The blocks look fabulous with Central Park!
