WIP Wednesday [ EPPing]

I had a day to sew by myself on Sunday - uninterrupted. It was lovely. And I'l gradually share with you what I was working on. But for the most part I have spent the week hand-stitching. There's been a lot of binding involved, but also some EPP.

I've been working on a fairly new project - one I started just after Christmas. Trapies. These are mostly made of half hexagons and I love how they seem to spin. I've made two blocks so far (I know - not much) and I'll keep going until I get bored. Chances are that will be a cushion :)

The third block is basted and ready to piece and I think once I make that third and place them all together I'll get a better idea of how they will work with each other.

And the other project is an old one. In summer 2013 I made some hexagons. The plan was something quite involved for the Fat Quarterly swap, but I fell pregnant and lost all energy and inclination, so ended up scaling back my plans. But I already had a lot of hexies basted, and mostly sewn into flowers. I have spent the last 18 months moving them around my sewing area. I'm fed up of it, so I figure the best way to deal with it is to stitch them all together and make something...another cushion?

Slowly these little projects will become something more. Just don't hold your breath for a finish any time soon. But, pop back tomorrow for a finish!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.

I love seeing EEP projects! It's something I hope to try myself when I've fought my way clear of a mountain of UFOs. :p The caged hexies are especially interesting - I'm intrigued as to how they go together.

I like the color of your hexies! I have a pile of these made too and now I'm trying to figure out what to do with them ha!

I love doing EPP. Your first project looks really interesting, I haven't seen that block before.

Still trying to work out what EPP stands for! Anyway, love your Trapies - I need to try these! xx
