I couldn't resist showing you this little delicate flower on a tree I planted near the front door - I can't remember what it is called but it smells divine - I planted one each side of the path 2 years ago. It is a slow grower but these sweet little blooms make it worthwile.
I am doing "This Goes With That" BOM and haven't played with it for a few weeks but decided to make some stunning patterns that I would need a Quilters Kaleidiscope mirror. It was cheaper to make my own so I bought 2 square candle mat's which had a stick on edging.
I peeled it off but was left with a thick sticky residue.
I got out my trusty Eucalyptus Oil which is great for removing gummy stuff.
And Voila ! No more sticky gunk - Just 2 perfect little square mirrors.
I joined them together with a bit of black tape.
On the back
Yep they cost just $2.00 each - Much cheaper than some of the commercial varieties.
So using a mirror and your template you can turn this
Into this - Just by fussy cutting your fabric for paper piecing.
Or Maybe even this ......
So I will be spending some time tomorrow cutting bits of "Ruby" to add to my collection of shapes for "This Goes With That"
Morning Fee :D

I managed to 'acquire' two bathroom mirror tiles and did a similar thing but I think mine may be a tad too large and yours looks much more user friendly Fee.
Clever girl, your flower looks like a Geisha Girl, we have them in the garden
Fabulous idea Fee.
I borrowed a mirror like that when purchasing fabric to do a Kaleidoscope quilt workshop.Now can make my own. Thanks
Clever you Fee!!! Wish I'd thought of that before I bought mine ;o)!!!
Love n hugs,
