One lonely Klosjes...

I'm enjoying not having any major projects with deadlines on at the moment, so took time out today to challenge myself and do some paper piecing..and taa daa,  here is the result...!!
(I'm not sure if one is a klosje or is it a klosjes also??)
 One very lonely little klosjes! 
I was inspired by Rose Marie's klosjes; she gave a really good tutorial on drawing up the template, making it all look really easy. I basted and used paper but a friend, Leeanne, who has done heaps of paper piecing advised me that using lightweight card and a Sewline glue pen is even more effective..and what's more, quicker, so I'll be trying that next time.
I seem to be having a real stint on hand sewing projects at the moment - lots of stitcheries, needleturn and now this! ...off to do some more...
Happy sewing everyone,

Your klosjes turned out great ..... it is one thing to write up a tutorial, but another to see someone else make a sample. That is a good tip about the glue.
