Week 35: English Paper Piecing

The month of May was a quiet one for me on the craft front, but I did finally figure out how English Paper Piecing works. Ever since I laid eyes on Johanna Masko's gorgeous cushion that hangs around the Workroom couch I've been itching to learn how to do this. Thanks to some old sewing books I had kicking around and this wonderful online tutorial from Craft (by the way, anyone know what happened to Craft Magazine? I haven't seen a new issue in forever) I was able to get started on my own cushion cover. I didn't mean for it look so 70s, but I kinda like it anyway. Just another thirty or so hexagons to go!

i know, i was sad that the craftzine has stopped publishing. their final one was volume 10. apparently their print magazines were facing rising production costs and shrinking ad markets. :( everytime i find a mag i like, it always gotta go! sup with that?!

ps. i really like your piecing!!!!
