Some Tasty Treats

Not of the food variety but of the needlework kind - much kinder on the waist I find. ;0)

First up for viewing are the contents of this morning's pinkie:

July's Fabric Club is a piece of Polstitches 32ct Mythical Mermaid (Jayne knows me so well) and another stunning rainbow of Carrie's Creations. My favourite has to be Sea Mist and I really want to stitch a design using only this thread. What a great way to start the day. :0)

The seriously tasty treats are courtesy of my friend Alex, who not only brought her gorgeous stitchwork with her yesterday but has kindly let me hang on to them, so I could take some pics to post on here. Remember those little embroidered patches I mentioned in a much earlier post? Well here are my rather poor pics of them:

Whilst some stitched areas on the patches may be repeated on more than one patch no two are alike. Aren't they so pretty? Her plan is to put all the patches together onto one piece of fabric, using bands of black dupion silk between them but, as they are all different sizes, they won't be in a strict geometric pattern, as you get in a patchwork quilt. I am so looking forward to seeing it when it's finished as it will look amazing and yes, I will take a pic. :0)

I'll put pics of the fabric box up another time - it deserves a post all of its own.

Today has been a long, hot day and I'm really tired so I'm keeping this short and sweet, for a change, and going for an early night. I can hear the cheers from here. LOL

Wherever you are I hope you've all had a lovely day and thank you for visiting. :0)
