When F + W media asked me to be a part of the Paper Pieced Home blog hop of course I said Yes!
I have known Penny Layman, the author of the Paper Pieced Home for a few years. She and Ayumi from Pink Penguin invited me to be a member on the Ringo Pie Bee for the second round. It was such an honor as I love her work!
Penny has a playful fun style and her pattern was a breeze to put together.
I had a blast making the Espresso Mug pattern but of course I had to give it a bit of a twist.
My mug has a Very Cherry Italian Soda inside : )
I love the straw detail and the way Penny pieced the whip cream (or foam for a latte ) on top.
Some of my favorite patterns in the book are:
The footstool. The shape of the legs are brilliant.
I also love the claw foot tub. My absolute favorite kind of bath tub.
