Freezer Paper extravaganza

Here's a photo of my first Freezer Paper stencil.

For those of you who tuned in recently you'll remember I purchased Lena Cowrin's Printing By Hand. Since then I've patiently waited for my Freezer Paper to arrive so I could get started. (I ordered my paper from OzQuilts...although hoppo bumpo ordered hers through Punch & Judy). I'm quite happy with how it turned out and am eager to give it another go soon. If you'd like to try one yourself I found these helpful links to get you started.

Actually, Hoppo Bumpo has done some fantastic research on freezer paper suppliers and pricing, cutting out all the hard work, so head over and take a tip from her. Thank you Hoppo Bumpo!!!

Well done - I am loving this stencil stuff too. That looks pretty intricate - did it take you forever to cut out?

Thanks elliboo. It did take a little time but I was watching TV at the same time so it didn't feel like it took as long as it did.
