A discovery!!!!

Nowadays I tend to go browsing the internet when I start something new. Well - not if it's a tatting project as I THINK I know enough to get myself by on that craft!! 

Something like patchwork does need some research although it's a craft I've done many times over the years. I've found out that it's now called 'English paper piecing' (EPP) which was a surprise to me!!! I guess times change even though there's never enough of it (back to Monday's moan!!!).

I found a really good video on the subject here. The main thing I got from this video was the fabric glue pens!! I'd never heard of them before (I lead a sheltered life!) so, off to the internet and I bought myself a pen!!

Some progress on the project.

I hear its very addictive. Pretty soon you'll be hanging in dark quiltong shops and begging for scraps! Much safer to stick with tatting.

I hope not, Victats!!! I’ve waaaay too much thread that needs using and beads too!!!

So many interesting products are being developed that make crafting easier. I didn’t know the term English paper piecing either.

It looks a lot like origami to me.

Washable glue sticks from the school supplies also work well and are easier to find.

Oh, thanks a million, Joan. I'll look out for those. Probably cheaper too!!!
