The Importance of Shopping

 My Mum would have a giggle at this cause we have done our fair share of shopping together. And - it is a fact that shopping is a learned skill!! I know that for sure because not everyone can do it well. It is important to have a good role model to learn from. 
Thanks Mum!
Gave that paper piecing thingy another try.
Note to self: Use a bigger image next time!!!!
