My second attempt at paper piecing. I made this from my own drawing this time.
I did some curved piecing for the rice and did get a few puckers but I managed to cover the worst up with the appliqued chopsticks.
And since I have too many blocks lying around as it is I turned this one into a small mugrug it's about 4 1/2 x 6 1/2"
Oh, and those handstitches are supposed to be rice grains...not sure if that's obvious enough!
