If you combine hot, humid weather with lots of work at work and with a sewing machine that cannot decide whether to sew or spit out the bobbin case, the sewing situations gets rather tricky.
Fortunately for a sewing addict (and I just might be one of them) there's EPP.
As some of you might have guessed, I got tempted by the Retreat Issue of Fat Quarterly. I altered Brioni's pattern a bit, as I wanted something a bit smaller than a placemat, still I hope it looks OK:
This was followed by a bunch of tiny hexies (well, not too tiny, they are roughly 1" across):
I will use them to embellish a small tote for my Mum.
And now I think I would love to make an EPP quilt one day (and maybe even with hexies, although not as small as these). I'm quite prepared to take it very slowly, I'm just wondering if there are any tricks to actually make it through till the end - any thoughts?
