Thanks Melody,

The bee fabric ive had for at least 10 years never  knew what to use it on, this seemed an appropriate block for it.

lots of love

When, I do my PP, I lay a light strip under my aycrilic, machine extenion,  then i lay my paper and fabric, i can see where everything needs to be, no prefolding anything, easy peasy

I didn't get to the paper pieced block today - but it is on my list to do first thing tomorrow - so I'll take pictures of each of my steps and post them so that you can see how I do it.  I don't usually have to unsew any pieces if I do it - only when I don't follow my own advice and get a head of myself do I have those problems... sorry though I truly thought I would feel up to doing it today - i did sew though - finished up the placemats that I had started the other day... now to sandwich and quilt them... that will come another day though...
