Life is mostly about hand sewing at the moment. February has turned into quite the busy little month and in the evenings I'm finding I would rather sit with hand sewing on the sofa than at my machine. Of course, a lack of sewing times means I have hundreds of ideas swimming around inside my head, desperate to get out!
But back to the hand sewing - I have three EPP projects on the go at the moment - some hexies left over from a project I worked on in 2013, some trapies blocks I started at Christmas and some clamshells. I order the paper pieces months (if not years) ago and carefully put them in the box for "one day".
Rachel over at Stitched in Color kicked off a Clambake quilt-along a few weeks ago and Anne and Adrianne kicked off the Pantone Colour challenge at about the same time, so I decided to play along with both and pulled out those paper pieces. Turns out that they are quite small - just 2" across the width, and it also turns out that sewing them together are quite fiddly. No, very fiddly!
Almost giving-up-level fiddly. But it turns out that with some perseverance it does get easier. But this will never grow up and become a full size quilt. I'm optimistic about a stripe on a cushion cover!
