I found myself with a little spare time on my hands yesterday and couldn't resist the urge to try Jeli Quilts Skinny Minny Geese once again. Except this time I wanted to make the 4" blocks.

But I didn't. Dinner could wait! This was more important and I kind of felt if I stopped in the middle, I may never finish it. I powered through each section, each ridiculously small piece and got it done.
If I could pull it off, I can do anything! Maybe not anything, just more than I thought I could. How wild are all those threads?
I'm going to be so bold and say 'I pulled it off'!! Yikes! Perfect? Certainly not! Adorable? Yes indeed!
This was most definitely the hardest and most challenging paper pieced project I have ever done. The pieces were so small!
The question at the end was what to do with it?! As you can see I went with a pin cushion. A logical choice.
The past couple weeks I have been feverishly working Secret Santa gifts for our Guild swap. I would love to share what I have done...but it will have to wait for another couple weeks.
In between secret sewing, I've also been making 'things' for a Holiday Giveaway I will be having in December. This little guy will be one of them. So, please stick with me and check back! My small way of saying 'thank you' to all of you who have supported, encouraged and inspired me!
Completing this Skinny Minny project reminds me that we can accomplish just about anything if we set out minds to it! It may not be easy, it may be a big pain in the butt...but it can be done with a little perseverance...and a whole lot of crazy!
