After what has been an epic summer, today is the first day back to school for my kids!  Yes, HUGE grin 😀

A few weeks ago, Amanda from The Cozy Pumpkin asked me to share a Tuesday Tip on her blog.  To say that I was thrilled to bits is an understatement!!


So today, to celebrate Back To School, I have a tutorial for you 🙂  Head on over to Amanda’s blog to read more about it.

English Paper Pieceing (EPP) is so much fun and a great way to use up all your scraps. Make cute little hexagons to embellish your other projects or sew them together to make hexie flowers and other shapes.  To make EPP speedy, I’ll show you step-by-step how I glue baste hexagons.

    Thanks for your good tutorial. I’ve not been using the glue method very long. Last night I tried to sew tog a rosette of hexies that had been glue basted. Round 1 around the center hexie went fine. I then stitched the Round 2 hexies tog. While sewing this round on to the 1st round, some of the 2nd-round hexie papers began to come out before I even had them sewn on. What am I doing wrong? Not using enough glue?
