2 1/2 Rows!

Slow and steady wins the EPP race, right? I'm sharing yet more pictures of these same flowers, but now they're joined into rows. 2 1/2 rows, to be exact. Only 4 1/2 left to go!

This step is actually going faster than I expected. There are only 4 seams between each flower and connecting pair unit, so I guess that's why. I can usually stitch a couple of seams in the mornings before the arrival of the little ones I look after, and a couple of seams every day adds up. Of course, it helps that I like to pull this out whenever I have a spare couple of minutes, or when I have a cup of tea, or any other chance I get.
It's fun to see each chain grow longer. When I finish stitching, I always hold it up by one end to get a good look at the progress I've made, even if all I had time to do was add one connecting pair!

Have you entered my Anniversary Giveaway yet? It's open until Monday morning, so there's still time.

I'll be linking up with Hydeeann's In Hand EPP party again this month.

  3. I love the look of EPP but have never tried it. I like the blue that you picked for the background.

  4. That's one of the beauties of EPP, you can pick it up even when you only have a minute or two and it all adds up. Looking good!

  5. I love this piece with its beautiful, rich, blue inbetween hexies. Makes the flowers really pop!

  6. This looks amazing with the deep blue surrounding the blocks.

  7. Slow and steady is the only way to go with EPP! Your rows are looking great.

  8. Great progress! The flowers look brilliant with the blue!

  9. I love flowers. I am still a beginner EPPer but one day I will have a little flower garden :-)
    And I am totally with you on holding up the chain to see the progress. I do this even if I've only stitched 2 hexies together :-)
    Oh! And thanks for linking up to Making for Me! E xx
