I had a lovely surprise this week. Charise sent me her bee block for my month in Patchwork 318 Bee which uses designs from Kumiko Fujita's wonderful OOP book. My theme is Afternoon Tea, and my plan is a table runner for my kitchen. Now her block was a beauty- witness below
I love the mix of vintage and new fabrics and the texty tea time words, and if this wasn't enough she popped this in too
I feel totally spoiled! I had already admired the dumpling here, I didn't realise it was coming to me. The shape is a free tutorial from Keykalou. It is the perfect size for my thread snips, might even stop me losing them all the time.
The fabrics she included with it are special too- a new Suzuko Koseki print (and my favourite of her new ones) and a sublime piece of vintage kitchen fabric- you will see more of it shortly as I am including it in some quilt blocks.
Hugs to Charise xxx A very generous and talented lady xxx
