Pillow Talk Swap pillow
EPP starflower pillow - I've officially run out of my background fabric, but I ordered more last week so hopefully it will be here any day now. If you had told me last year at this time that I would be doing lots of hand sewing, I would have laughed in your face. I long joked that I was allergic to hand sewing. I thoroughly detested it. But in the last year, I think my sewing horizons have expanded, and I have come to actually like hand sewing. A little bit. The lack of speed is something that I still get frustrated with from time to time, but in general, I'm really enjoying my little hand projects, especially the English Paper Piecing (EPP) variety.
new this week:
EPP honeycomb pouch - I've got at least six pouches to make for the h-olidays, and I'm starting with this one, adorned with some brightly colored EPP honeycomb pieces. These things are tiny! 3/4"! It was quick to baste them, but sewing them down onto my background fabric was tedious to say the least. I like the looks of this one so far.
Sea of Stars quilt-along - The Sea of Stars quilt along will kick off this coming Monday with a post about choosing fabrics for this quilt. If you haven't gotten your pattern yet, you can pick it up in my Pattern Shop or at my Craftsy shop. No need to buy your fabric just yet, unless you know exactly what you want, otherwise Monday's post will help you make your choices. Planning to join in the quilt along fun? Grab a button and add it to your blog!
I'm gearing up to work on my handmade holidays list of to do's, as I plan to gift a lot of handmade items this year, so I suspect next week's WiP list will look quite different, with a focus on the Sea of Stars quilt along and finishing holiday gifts, rather than fun EPP projects for me :) I'm linking up with Lee's Work in Progress Wednesday linky, pop on over there to see lots of other bloggers working their way through their To Do list.
