I added the book titles myself.

I ordered the 6x6 and 11x11 Q-Snap frames from Sublime Stitching. I think the shapes are a little more convenient than the round hoop frames. I also bought some handkerchiefs from amazon.com. I can't believe how hard it is to find handkerchiefs, in this "green" age. I had allergies something terrible on Monday, and thought it would be nice to have embroidered hankies. Now, I will.

I'm still doing the EPP method. After I finish a flower, I remove the templates and use them for the next flower. As shown in the picture above, I get excited so I press what I've finished. The flowers on the bottom were finished last night and today. I will embroider once the green and white hexes have been added.... only because the flower will be big enough to fit an embroidery hoop... maybe my size 5.

Finished! My fingers hurt. I've poked myself, I've bled, but I finished. I've also discovered sequins! This is the 'bad influence' side... "don't give in to those juvenile delinquents Tink. Keep ignoring them... they're a bad lot, all of 'em." That transfer pen gives me a false sense of artistic talent. I may put more drinks down in the bottom corner, but I'm too tired. I can't wait to embroider the images onto my quilt top.... haven't quite figured out how to do it yet. I'm a long way from doing that anyway. Back to EPPing those hexs.
