First off, how is it almost mid-March already? Craziness. Hard to believe we're 10 weeks into the New Year.
I must give the Monday Morning Star Count at Life Under Quilts a big shout out … because of the inspiration and motivation I've gained from this link party, I have done almost as much EPPing in 10 weeks as I did the entire 6 months I EPP'd last year. (I only started EPPing in June.) I am more hooked on EPP than ever! (And my lack of cross stitch progress is showing it. Teehee.)
So, on to the real business … progress photos!
Again, I found basting to be therapeutic and relaxing this week and I managed to get 20 hexies done. That's 85 hexies basted since Jan 1 (my New Year's goal was to baste 100 before Dec 31, 2014) and 204 in total.
This weekend I also plucked up the courage and stitched together 3 of the big diamonds in my 6-point star:
Taking out some more of the papers was totally satisfying, I can't wait to do it again.
Finally, I am still being tempted into a new project start by my fabrics … resistance is weakening. (Sorry for the smidgeon of blurriness.)
