One done!

Here is my first Bead on a String block for February.


This is the first time I have used the freezer paper method for applique.  Thank you Sophie for making me reach!! It was much easier than I thought it would be.  I used spray starch to help fold the circle under which worked out very well.  I have a third block almost complete which I will add to the other two sides of this and make the next two blocks.  Hope to have all 9 blocks done over the weekend!

On a side note:  I’ve received 30 wonderful Double Chevrons in the mail.  Sew much Fun!!

Happy Friday from Marie in Snowy New Hampshire!



  1. For me, after I get past my fear of trying something new, it’s almost easier than I thought it was going to be. Your first attempt at freezer paper appliqué turned out great!

    Thanks for the update on your Chevrons. I think everyone is waiting for the last few blocks.

    • Marie just a quick note to say thank you for your understanding and to let you know the Chevrons have been reposted… I was also wondering …Just what is freezer paper? I have looked for it in the stores and not had any luck. One clerk wondered if it wasn’t Wax paper? Your bead looks great and if you get 8 more done on the weekend you’ll have done well! Happy Days to You!

  2. the freezer paper method… is that the same as the Dale Fleming method?
