EPP hexagon pillow...a finish, finally

I finally finished my epp hexagon pillow! I first showed you some of the 2 inch hexies pieced together here. Well, that was two months ago! I probably wouldn't have finished it except that my dad has been in the hospital for two weeks and I've had a little free time (while the relishes are at pre-school) sitting up there keeping him company. He is feeling better, but will likely have heart surgery later this week. With that said, I have had very little time/energy to sew.

EPP Hexagon Pillow

Really not much to say about this pillow other than I used charms from Simply Color by V and Co. for Moda. Two inch hexagons are the perfect size for 5 inch charms, FYI. I used my Silhouette to make the paper templates. I keep telling Mr. Relish it will pay for itself! lol

I also started a new EPP project today while sitting at the hospital. I am excited about this one! It has hexagons, squares, and triangles, oh my! I didn't take a picture today, but maybe I will tomorrow and blog real quick from my ipad.

I did finish Mr. Relish's anniversary quilt but I'm saving that post for next month for Sew We Quilt's blog hop, For the Boys! Wooohooo...my first blog hop! Stay tuned for that, but just so you know, he LOVED it!


I am also liking up over at Hydee Ann's (<--love her name!) new monthly EPP linky party at Splish Splash Stash! You must go check it out this Saturday! Hi, Hydee Ann!

Lastly, while I was taking pictures of my hexagon pillow early this morning (see the dew?), I also snapped a picture of little relish sporting her first pony ever! Isn't she adorable?

That's all I got for you this week. Thanks for visiting!
