Brrrr it's cold out there!

REALLY!  It's Saturday already!?!

Hello my friends ... where is the time going?  And to think I'm not even headed out doors most days ... with being retired and the temps only in the single digits or teens ... I'm staying indoors where it's warm and playing in my cave!!!

Today I'm working on DT creations but decided to take a break and create something for the Twisted Thursday Challenge over at The Outlawz challenge site.
Theme:  Anything Goes - Twist is PAPER PIECING

Gosh I haven't done a paper pieced creation is a long time so this was a lot of fun!
I've actually created with some very OLD, OLD product and some NEW products!

Here's a few additional challenge to join in on:
Digi Haven - Baby It's Cold Outside
Digitally 'Sweet' Challenge #71 - Anything Goes (must use digi)
QKR Stampede - Blue & White
Sister Act Challenge #40 - Anything Goes
Totally Paper Crafts #202 - Paper Piecing

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I guess I'd better quite playing around and get busy!
Enjoy your weekend!
As Always . . .

Very pretty Darlene! I love the snowflake flurry border you used. The paper piecing is great, and I love the texture you gave the cuffs.
