Altered Puzzle Piece
This is truly out of my comfort zone. The assignment for Ethel's swap was to alter puzzle pieces with an "all about me" theme. There are nine people in this swap. Each person has a large nine piece children's puzzle (each piece is about 3" by 3") and each participant give one piece of their puzzle to each of the nine participants. Then each one of us alters the other participants puzzle piece telling something about themself. Then we send our pieces to Ethel, she swaps the puzzles back to the original senders and we all end up with a puzzle with something about each participant on one of their puzzle pieces.
Whew...it isn't as complicated as it sounds when I write it out but I'm not too good at altering objects ... at least it isn't something I feel confident about and also talking about myself is hard.
Anyway, I decided to make my altered pieces a sewing theme. This is one of the puzzle pieces...all about me.
