Slow Sunday Stitching.

I’ve been hand stitching all week, little bits at a time in the evenings. The more I do of this EPPing, the more I love it. I finished up the teal star I was working on last week but didn’t get pictures of it finished. We took a short trip out to Joan’s shop in Mt Brydges, Sew Creative, and she is carrying some of our “Little Bits”. I left her the purple star and the teal star to use as samples. It looks like it will be the end of March before we have a web site up and running for selling these. In the meantime, if anyone is interested, email me at eagleswingsquilts@icloud.com, or leave a comment here on the blog. If you do leave a comment, make sure you aren’t a no reply blogger and that I can reach you. If you’re not sure, it would be better if you emailed me directly. I can do custom sizes, or any of the regular popular sizes. We are also doing up acrylic templates for the EPPing shapes. I am discovering that it is fun, and also dangerous to have ready access to all kinds of shapes and sizes. To someone with quilter’s A.D.D it’s like letting a kid loose in a candy shop. But I’m having tons of fun!!
I’m continuing to work on the fussy cut jewels that will eventually end up being Creme Brûlée, a design by Willyne Hammerstein in her second book. I have 4 done and a fifth one started.

We’re having all the family over for the afternoon and for dinner this evening. So the stitching time today might be a bit limited. I’m going to try to at least get the blue edging onto the partially finished jewel. And maybe some more pieces fussy cut and prepared for stitching. In the meantime, I’ll link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.

  1. Congratulations on your foray into Joan's shop! The packaging looks very professional.
    Your blocks look fun too - but I suppose we'll all have to be patient as we wait to see the bigger picture emerge...

  2. I have yet to try EPP. I like the affect of the fussy-cut hexies. The designs have movement.

  4. Were you, by the way, the one who made a traveling sewer's kit? Is there a pattern for it? I sew in the car using a small vera bradley cosmetic bag. I think the constant quilter blogged about it...??? hugs, Julierose

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
