So it’s a good day for stitching!!! I’ve been working on a new design that I was fiddling around with last night. Just a sneaky peek for now …a bit of stitchery, a bit of applique’ … I’m enjoying the design process at the moment. I’m stitching away and I still haven’t made up my mind what it will be :o).
I had a fabulous morning yesterday … I was able to catch up with Cheryl for a few hours while her DH was in a meeting. Cheryl lives a couple of hours or so from me so we don’t get to see each other very often, so we made the most of our short time together and hit the patchwork shops!! Here we are at the end of our morning still with big smiles on our faces :o) …… Cheryl it was so lovely to see you again … can’t wait to do it again soon :o)!!!! You’ll have to check out Cheryl’s blog to see what she bought…. but here are my spoils, some gawjus fabrics from my local patchwork store – Bayside Stitchcraft … The cream one on the left is for around my pieced applique’ blocks, but the rosy one … well, I simply couldn’t resist that one :o). It’s SO pretty, look at the lovely design in the fabric, it’s almost like a damask …and I also bought some new rayon threads for my pieced applique blocks from Spotlight, I’ve been using silk thread and it’s just fabulous but none of the places we visited stocked it, so I thought I’d give these a go, and they’re lovely :o)!!! Pretty colours too ;o).
I also came home to some rather t’riffic mail!!! I was the lucky winner of Jenny of Elefantz charm square challenge last month and my beautiful prize arrived … oooh I love that little birdie…. She’s sitting on my GAWJUS rosy teatowel, also from Jenny … I can assure you that one will NEVER be used for drying dishes!!! No no no …. it’s much too pretty!!!! Thanks so much dear Jenny, I love them both :o)!!!!!
I’m off to do some more stitching!!!
