I finished three out of the six little hexi flowers I found in my stash. These are so cute, quick, a little project before I head off to my day job on Wednesday mornings. I am thinking of making them into pin cushions or I may just keep on making them. They are very addictive! And relaxing to stitch!
Since I finished all the EPP I am going to do for now on my Tula Pink pillow, (Long story short, my sewing machines are not set up right now and I don't really know when they are going to be, so the quilting part of the Tula Pink pillow just needs to be put on hold for awhile) So I decided to start a new EPP project. Why not?
I picked up these 2 Moda Grant Park charm packs from the Eastern Long Island Quilt show this past June. I am basting them into 4 inch hexies with plans of making them into a table runner.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. As I mentioned in my last post, I am attempting to clean my sewing area (aka my dining room). I keep on getting distracted with some great things I am finding that I have forgotten about like this Sashiko piece.
I picked this up at a Quilt show back in 2011!
Sashiko is a 350 year old Japanese hand needlework technique using a thick cotton thread to create a geometric pattern against a solid background fabric.
I am going to make this my Sunday Stitching project and will post updates on Sundays.
While I was attempting to organize my sewing area (aka dining room). I found these cute English Paper Pieces kits from Paper Pieces. I was trying to remember where I pick them up from....I either got them from a Quilt Show or from a lecture/truck show given by Jessica's from Life Under Quilts.
I found 6 of these kits.
On Wednesday, I work the late shift so before heading off to work, I was able to baste six 1/2 inch hexies. I thinking these would make cute pin cushions.
