Slow Sunday Stitching -- EPP is Addictive!

I'm still working on my pre-printed cross stitch pillow case.  I finished all of the bow on a little road trip in the motorhome.  We love our family time and cherish it.



Yesterday I started something small to take in my sew-to-go bag just in case I get bored with my cross stitch pillow case.  I've never tried English paper piecing and thought I would give it a GO!  (with the help of my new EPP Accuquilt GO! die that I got for an early birthday present).  I LOVE IT!  I thought it would be hard and tedious.  It's fun and relaxing!  So far so good.


 
Since this is my first EPP project, I am making a little table mat for our kitchen table.  It will have a pattern something like this:

  1. I really enjoy EPP work, it's so portable and much smaller than an embroidery piece. You are wise to start with a small project. Enjoy yourself, it's very relaxing!

  4. I find it bothers my hands then someone said don't use card stock and use paper. Haven't tried it yet but you are right it can be so addictive.

  5. I have an EPP project to start also. I am intimidated by all the papers that I have to cut as each one is a different shape and size. I have never tried it either. I think you are inspiring me to take a look at it later this week. Your pillowcase is so pretty.

  7. EPP was one of several things I did back and forth across the US in the years we traveled full-time in a 5th wheel. It fits so nicely in an old candy tin! The pillowcase is looking good!
