EPP Tuesday and more catching up!

It's the fourth Tuesday in the month and so it is time to link up with Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches with all things EPP.

There is not much to report on the EPP front though - just that as well as these

I have altogether 47 diamonds and 26 hexagons basted and ready to add to my Hexathon hexies. They are my project this year for our month in Spain - and we leave tomorrow, so am now very excited!

Just a couple of things to quickly show you - this lovely Christmas postcard arrived for me from Sheila  of Sheila's Quilt World.

 Isn't he jolly! Thank you very much Sheila and I am sorry it has taken me so long to post about him.

Lastly, a last minute project before our trip has been this Noodlehead open wide zippered pouch.


 I had saved all the scraps from the Shibori bag that I made last year and already had the zip so it made up very quickly. Follow the link for Anna's excellent tutorial in three sizes - mine is the largest as I wanted to store all my art materieals together to take away.


By pieceing the lining I had just enough fabric! The base of the bag is 4.5" x 8" and it stands 8" high - looks enormous in my picture but thats the angle I was taking the picture from.

I hope to be posting some pictures of sunny Spain in the next few weeks but they have had a very poor winter and there was even snow on Alicante beach last week.


Have a great February.

How exciting to be going on a trip, and for a month, no less. Have a wonderful time. I really like that zippered pouch. I'll have to see if I can find the pattern and try to make one myself.
