Friday fun

P1070662It is something about hand piecing that makes me happy, always :-)

I used to say that I preferred machine piecing, but that is not true anymore.
I find that hand piecing, both traditional hand piecing and English paper piecing are so nice!

I need to start joining these hexagon flowers. I have bought a lovely red fabric I think will look nice with the scrappy look.

Sarah had a link-party for her birthday yesterday..
I was planning to join, but time slipped away. I think I will join anyway, today ;-)
If you like EPP and hexagons, please visit Sarah’s blog for an eye treat.

P1070663I have several EPP projects going. I can see several finishes this year!

P1070661Had to bake a new batch of oatmeal crackers yesterday. They are so good!
Recipe in Norwegian here. I have adjusted it a little to suit my taste, substituting half of the flour with flour with more fibre, and I can also see I will test with sesame seeds in the future.

P1070664Miss Cat is helping on the desk, blogging and organizing.
The strawberry needle sharper is a winner today :-)

TGIF – thank God it is Friday! 
Have a fun day, wherever you are :-)

So pretty! I love EPP and am doing some hexagons at the moment. I love your Dresden plates, can you buy pre-cut papers for this pattern?

Hand piecing makes me hasppy too. I love the tiny stitches and it is just so relaxing. Love your projects!! I look forward to seeing your finishes.

Melinda said...

I feel the same way about EPP. I love your flowers and especially your dresden plates. Beautiful.

Sarah said...

The red will be very striking with your hexies. Can you believe that I don't like hand sewing? Somehow EPP and bindings I do like..

Thanks for joining HeLP!

Koselig med håndsøm imellom maskinsøm, skikkelig avslapping :-)
Ønsker deg god helg :-)

Fine blokker du har laget. Jeg er også veldig glad i håndsøm, og har flere prosjekter på gang.
