Patchwork . . . PLEASE!

Someday I will find a way to save up enough money and travel to Japan where I will learn paper-piecing at the feet of the master.  Until that far off date, I've got this:

I've never been so excited about a book that I've bothered to preorder it, but several months ago I actually did.  Patchwork Please! will get me over my fear of paper piecing (I've decided!), and it arrived last week.  SO MUCH CUTENESS!  I haven't made anything from it yet, so no pictures to share, but Amazon has a good "look inside" preview here

I'm getting excited for the Zakka Along for Patchwork, Please! . . . I've been itching to sew up some little goodies since I first cracked the book, and it would be fun to do some of these projects "with" those participating.  With that being said, my time to sew has been limited lately (um . . . can you tell?!) so we'll just say I'm going to do my best and leave it at that for now.

Anyone else planning on joining the Zakka Along?  What have you been working on lately?

Good luck on the paper piecing! I don't know what the Zakka Along is, but it sounds fun. :-)
