One Hundred!

Well, as predicted, the pressure of my 100th post got to me! That and the fact that 4 of my current WIPs are secrets, so difficult to find things to share at the moment!

I thought about doing a bit of a round up of my finished projects so far this year, but then decided just to share this pretty EPP with you all instead. I do love a bit of patchwork, and I usually have several different projects on the go. This is quite a big one, long term-ish.
I took almost all my small scraps (from various places around the house!) and turned them into 3/4" hexagons. There are lots. Far more than the little pile in this photo!
Then I started stitching them into sweet little hexagon flowers, completely randomly.
I'm using invisible thread, something I have not tried before. I'm not massively keen on stitching with it, it is very plasticy and gets into funny tangles. It doesn't feel natural to sew with, like I'm fighting against it. But... those tiny little stitches are pretty much invisible - which I love!!
When I've finished making little flowers, there will hopefully be enough of them to sew together for a bit of a furniture make-over. I'm quite excited about it!!



  1. Oh my! Your stitches are so little and tiny!

  2. I am so addicted to EPP right now and I love gorgeous stacks of hexagons! I can't wait to see what this (and your secret projects!) turn into!

  3. I love your pretty little hexies! The thread is great for tiny invisible stitches, but as you say, it does take some getting used to!
    Happy week!

  4. Just found you via Selfsewn! Loving those piles of sweet hexy flowers, they are such a great way of using up little scraps and yours look so pretty when just randomly put together. Have fun making it!
