Welcome everyone, on Friday I linked up to Wendy’s Friday Night Sew In but those of you who know me will also know that this weekend has been a special one full of celebrating for my parent’s 60th Wedding anniversary. So this post is a little late because of all the partying I’ve been doing!
On Friday night and during travelling to and from my Mum and Dad’s home I’ve been busy doing my EPP stars. I’m so pleased I started this as it has been great to have a small portable project to take around with me.
As time has gone on I’ve become much better at preparing the diamonds and piecing the stars accurately – practise does make you improve. The centres are now much more together and I’ve learnt how to fiddle and fudge them better.
I’m still loving the colours but I’m glad I’m not just working on this project, variety keeps me from getting fed up. I must be working on about 5 little projects at the moment, how many are you working on?
Here’s what progress I’ve made so far with my stars.
Drum roll please….
There’s a big smile on my face!
I shall have to very soon go and look for some background fabric for this quilt – oh deary me, not fabric shopping again!!! And if that wasn’t enough I’ve heard on the grapevine that a new fabric shop has opened not too far away from little ol’ me 🙂
For those of you who were interested to know what the Queen’s anniversary card to my parents looked like, here it is..
It arrived on the day by helicopter (only kidding!) Such a lovely thing to do, don’t you think?
Until next time,
