the party is still going

my epp for the week: i've got my new hexie fabric additions washed, ready to cut, and also completed a block.
the first ever "in hand" epp link party is still open if you have an entry for this month. in the future, the party will be open from the second Saturday to the third, each month. there are currently 14 excellent entries in the party, so go have a look! i am most impressed with the variety and depth of the projects. here are a few highlights:

jan at sew and sow farm is organizing an epp bee, if you are interested, and introduced us to the lucy boston block.

lucy at charm about you has the teeniest, tiniest hexies (in liberty scraps - eek!) that i've ever seen

lauren aka giddy99 has this crazy cool rainbow pelt going on.

ooh, I want to highlight everyone, darn it! just go look at them for yourself. for the record, the party has received more than 650 visitors and the entrants have all gotten visits from the party, too.

the party definitely inspired me this past week to keep at my project whenever i get a chance. i've been working at it for short chunks of time either in the morning when i wake up and the house is quiet or in the evening before bed as a way to wind down and relax. also, fall sports season is in gear around here, so i've had a chance to epp in the fan stand while watching my kids play. i'm not a sports fan in the least (long story) but i have to say that being able to take some handwork along for games really helps brighten my attitude about the whole thing.

I know there's lots more epp projects out there, so let's see what you've got!
happy sewing whatever you're working on.

ps - my 200th celebration post and giveaway is coming up later this week. see you there.
