Paper Pieced Magnolia


 Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post-my sty has completely gone-Helen has a telephone app with the mental team in the next couple of weeks and poor Hollie is still testing positive for covid bless her so not seen her for nearly three weeks. 

Thank you to Monica for the beautiful card which made my day-Thank you x

My mojo has also been having a break been sat at craft desk and nothing happening!!!So been through my draft file to find something to post,can't even remember who I made this for tbh!

I made another paper pieced birthday card to show I used the beautiful Magnolia stamp from Chocolate Baroque and paper pieced using a scrap of P.paper from stash,the stamped Bee is also from Chocolate Baroque.

Stencils from Creative Expressions and Artisan Designs,the stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie and I added doodled borders.

Absolutely beautiful Carol. I hope the appointment works well for Helen and she decides to be compliant. They don't like it if the patient/client is not. I know from experience. Good to hear your stye has gone and poor Holly still not well, I guess she is really cheesed off. I hope she isn't too ill.

That CB stamp is something special and paper piecing really makes it shine. I am so sorry your granddaughter is still unwell. My daughter tested positive for Covid yesterday and I have had a message from test and trace because I saw her on Monday. Have to have a PCR test tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I don't have any symptoms so I hope it will be clear xx

Carol L said...

This is a very pretty magnolia and I like the bee accent with it too! So sorry for your DGD's illness, and I do hope and pray she'll be feeling fine in no time!

I love paper pieceing. The stenciled parts are beautiful details and a nice way to reduce the white space all whilst keeping a cleaner look.
