# 192 (Belated) February craft's review & calendar page for March

Lately I've been putting my sewing skills to the test with a few craft projects namely with the hand pieced table runner shown in the mosaic below. This was so much fun to make, I used a technique called English Paper Piecing (EPP for short) where the different pieces are sewn together by hand to form a motif, almost like making a puzzle really!

I've also been experimenting with Tunisian crochet (top left) and I've embarked on a big project: to sew together lots and lots of fabric hexagons to make a duvet cover. This is a long term project, very long term in fact as I intend to sew it all by hand so come back in a couple of years or so to see the end result ;-)

Oh, and here's my handmade calendar page for March.
