epp pluses

Last few days were super rainy and incredibly gray and gloomy. Horrible for having fun outside, but so very perfect for doing some slow and relaxed hand sewing.


Which was great since I really wanted to try out this unique template for making epp-ed pluses posted by Mollie over on her blog Wild Olive a few days back.


I even decided to cut into my precious hand printed Maze and Vale fabric. I so love where this is going. And the little "house" shape is super fun to work with. I think it brings the whole epp thing to a new, quite stylish and modern level.


 I love all these grays and beiges together. And I quite like the addition of black, as well. It was getting a little monotone for my liking so I added this bold black plus and now I like it again :)


And you know what? While I was looking for my epp supplies, I came across this bunch of colorful hexagons I made a while back (some of them are even sewn into flowers already). In all honesty though, I don't see myself using them any time soon so I thought I'd pass them on to someone who'd like to actually use them :).

Leave a comment below (make sure I have a way of contacting you if you win, so leave email address if you're a non-reply blogger) if you're interested in winning these hexagons and flowers and I will choose a winner on Wednesday evening.

Thank you all so much for taking part in this giveaway. Mr. Random chose Cassandra (comment #4) to be the winner. Congratulations!!!

Please note this giveaway is for US addresses only !!!

Talk to you soon. Svetlana

  15. I absolutely love the crosses EPP! They are perfect in the tapes and greys too. If I didn't already have so many EPP projects on the go, I'd be all over this - thank you so much for sharing.

    I'm not in the U.S. And I need more hexagons like a hole in the head, so it's just as well I can't enter!

  17. I can visualize the green and reds in a Christmas project and the others on my kitchen table as the colors coordinate w/my vintage inspired kitchen. The crosses look like fun too!
