  2. Very nice tutorial. It has been years since attempting EPP for me, but I keep reading all of these tutorials and blog posts from the internet, getting up the courage to try it once again. Thank you for sharing your tutorial and helping to inspire me to give it another try. Have a wonderful creative day!

  4. I love basting them but I find my hands start to hurt when I sew them together. I am determined to finish my project by just limiting myself to how many I stitch at a time! I may try hand piecing them as hand piecing doesn't seem to bother my hands.
