Yesterday's experiment with Starflower epp templates is not the only project I have decided to get on the go. I saw some grid paper made of half hexies and the pattern just jumped out at me. So I thought, why not. Why not have two epp projects on the go at the same time.
Out came the Go! Baby and I cut the 1.5" hexies papers. Yes, I use my Go! for paper templates more than I use it for fabric cutting it seems. But it is still very useful. After cutting a lot of hexies I cut them all in half. This was quick and easy template cutting. I love it.
I went into my stash and pulled out a charm pack of Pips, a charm pack of A Walk in the Woods and then got the scraps leftover from my Sew Stitchy quilt. This quilt will be a homage to Aneela, inspired by Emily and her wonderful quilt. I am missing a line - Little Apples - so we shall see how I go and if I think this will be enough or if I need to beg, borrow or steal a charm pack of that too. I reckon I can get three half hexies from each charm.
I now have everything I need (I think) to keep my fingers busy for a few days. I also have some good books, and my girls. Time to relax!
Enjoy your time away!! I hope it is just what you need to refresh! :)ReplyDelete
