i learned something new!

i learned something new!, originally uploaded by marinatina.

Nathan is okay, so that's great. I had a whole bunch of time to kill at the Urgent Care waiting room. Luckily, I taught myself English paper piecing last night, so I had something not scary to focus on. It's surprisingly fun, paper piecing; surprising because I generally detest hand sewing. Too slow and all that. This is very calming, though. You baste the fabric to paper templates, and then you whip stitch the pieces together. So easy! I'm not going to make any big promises about making an entire quilt like this, but I am definitely going to make a block. It's called Grandmother's Flower Garden, which is kind of nice.
