One Flower Wednesday

Here in Australia it's Wednesday, & so in keeping with the "one flower wednesday" idea of Karens (see the link on the side), I determined to have my very first attempt of paper piecing!! I figured if I started out at breakfast time, I might have a better chance of getting 1 whole flower made??? So, armed with the instructions for paper piecing & the templates (thanks Karen), off I went................. by late morning, after various breaks due to attending to this & that, I'm very proud to show off my very first flower, in the start of the "flower garden party"........... Taa Daa!!!!!
I can I'm going to be having fun using up lots of my scrappy bits to make up a wonderful flower garden!
Hugs to all,
Sharm
