This submarine was sending me paper piecing signals BIG time! I interpreted that to mean patriotic paper piecing and sat myself down to work. What fun I had cutting and applying glue to the teeniest of pieces! I used a 3/4-inch circle punch to create a window for the Ham-some pig using a window sheet (which doesn’t show up very well in the picture, unfortunately, since it’s clear)!
It’s Hambo Hoedown time again and, this week, Hambo Stamps is connecting with Operation Write Home, an organization that collects handmade cards to give to the troops that protect and serve our country! Anyone interested can send their finished challenge card to Hambo Stamps, to be forwarded on to the organization. The troops use the cards to send loved ones mail. What a great cause to help out with! For more details, check out the challenge blog!
