Piece Yourself Together time again

It's time to share all things EPP again. If you have been working on some EPP then do go to Anthea's blog and link up your work - and spread the word. Many thanks Anthea for hosting.

I have only one Hexathon block to show you this week. #22 Hyde Park.

This weeks block is underway but taking a while as there are more curves involved! Not my favourite.

I have sent off my swap hexies for the month and have also received a few more for my collection. This beautiful fussy cut flower.

And these have arrived recently too.

Work continues slowly on putting them all together - in between other projects or when I want something portable.

Do you remember this little owl that I picked up at a vide grenier?

Well I have replaced the horrid blue rubbery lump that pretended to be a pincushion and this is what he looks like now.

Much more handsome - and he has a couple of little friends.

I'm also linking up with Needlework Tuesday  at Books and Quilts. 

Happy stitching!


  1. The blue and yellow are perfect together. Nice job on refurbishing the owl pincushion!

  2. The fussy cut hexa flower looks like a sea star. So beautiful! The yellow brings out the best of the blues. Great job on the owl. I much prefer it now too. Enjoy the stitching! ;^)

  3. The owl is looking altogether better, I agree - well done!

  16. I like the variety of the Hexathon blocks. I'm not ready to try one yet, but the more I see pictures of them, the more encouraged I get.

    I like the yellows you have chosen for between the 'flowers'.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
