How I love EPP

I'm sure Jano must hate me...or wonder why he has been made redundant to a bent needle and yards of thread. Mind you it has been totally worth it. All the EPP has been helping to restore my mojo, which I lost last month and since then haven't even touched Jano. I'll need him for the next part of my swap items though!

The embroidered hoop is almost finished. Here's a pic of the front.

I love rainbow themes! I've since glued some linen to the back with a hand written message for my partner., That's drying so I'll show it to you once she gets it. Just got to make the smaller item...which will require Jano's help- I can feel his excitement.

Then I got on with more basting of my diamond and hexies

Its such fun to press them flat. I chain baste them all first then cut and press. I more or less get 4 or 5 hexies on each length of thread I cut. The diamonds I could get about 6 or 7.

Then I opened my parcel from yesterday?....

Now to find some fun embroidery patterns or maybe I'll use some fabric with an iconic print to embroider...some Summersville perhaps....

Ah the possibilities

Linking up tonight with 
There and Back

Siya'll tomorrow =D
