I've been pulling a few UFOs out of the crate lately, and feeling great about finishing them. A couple of years ago I took a class in EPP - specifically focussing on how to deal with curves. If I remember correctly, I spent the whole class preparing for stitching - and then put it all away for another time!!
This was the project I had in mind for Friday night stitching with Wendy and friends. Perfect to get me going and very relaxing.
I placed all the apple cores - I'm sure the plan was to make a small placemat thingy, to put under a vase etc. I then watched one of Sue Daley's youtube tutorials to remind me about the tips and tricks of curves and EPP. Then I started gluing and stitching.
Wow, I'd forgotten just how slow EPP was - but I have to admit I think this is what appeals most (I'm not sure what says about me???)
So I've almost finished each of my rows, and I plan to keep this project out until it's complete! I'm open to ideas about binding/finishing - do I follow the curvy edge, applique it on some background fabric or cut back to a square? What are your thoughts???
Thanks Wendy for hosting. I'll pop over and check out what everyone else was up to.
