In between all the secret wedding sewing that’s happening here I’ve found a bit of time to work on my EPP quilt.
I used a tip that Karen of Faeries and Fibres shared and that was to quilt around the big shapes first to stabilise the quilt sandwich and then go back and fill in the smaller areas.
As you can see I’ve done a big stitch round the hexagons. Boy was it hard to alter my stitch length! I guess we are all used to stitching the way we do that to suddenly change is tough, quite a bit of unpicking happened to start with as my stitches were too small for the effect I wanted, but I got there 😉
I’m now working through all those stars, just going round them one by one. Funny when I made them I eagerly counted each one up to my target number of 126, now I’m eagerly counting down from 126!
About half done now, but there’s no rush 🙂
The sun has been shining and as we are firmly into Spring here there’s a lot of seed sowing happening in the garden. This year I’m hoping to do more vegetable growing than before and although I don’t have a vast garden I do have a greenhouse and a small raised bed, both of which I plan to fill with goodies.
Happy days 🙂
