70 mph Paper Piecing!

I promised you some sewing, and here it is!

I packed some English Paper Piecing, for piecing while in …. England! 

These 5 stars were almost completely sewn while travelling at speed along various motorways and dual carriageways through England and Wales!  I didn’t even know I could sew in a speeding car until I tried it, and was relieved to find that I could, & had something to distract me from the monotony!

(No I wasn’t driving at the same time – I can multi-task but I’m not that good!)


I’m thinking of teaching EPP in class next year, so thought I would use this time as an opportunity to make a start on class samples.

I also managed to get a few more ‘granny flowers’ sewn, which I started an embarrassingly long time ago as part of the Hexalong QAL Lynne was hosting last year.  I will get it finished, sometime!

I went right off these vintagey flowers last year, but they are growing on me again, perhaps because I’m working with some lucious vintage sheets at the mo! (More on that another day!)

BTW, Lynne has just posted some great tips on how to ‘go faster’ with your EPP. Check it out!

My no.1 daughter has been busy this summer improving the look of her wee Etsy shop and adding in some new items. 

She has blogged about them here, and she’d love it if you took a wee peek in her shop! There are some adorable pin toppers in there!  Just saying!
