Let me get this off my chest....



I love paper-piecing but I can't deny it's a fiddly job. No matter how careful I am , somehow, I'm bound to cut out all the pieces and still find a piece missing when I come to assemble it.

And today was no different - I cut out the scarf, put it aside, then had to search all over for it till I gave up and did it again.

Later, I sat down at my PC to read some emails, felt an irritation in my cleavage, fished down and found...the cut-out scarf! How???!!!

Such a cute card! Your paper piecing efforts were well worth it and I sure enjoyed the chuckle at where you found it! I can totally relate on losing those crucial small pieces that seem to hide in the strangest spots. Thank you so much for playing with us at Cardz 4 Galz and look forward to seeing you in our gallery again.

So funny! Nice card! I like to do this until now I never lost a thing. Mostly I put a little bowl next to me for the little pieces. 😊
