I have been the most dreadful tease and posted a slow series of tempting pics to tantalise my swap partner at the Scrappy Pincushion swap. Entree- linen, cashmere/wool, vintage cotton lace.
Main course: Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley- wall flowers and whatever the grey print is called, Yuwa text, American Jane Recess tape measures and Suzuko Koseki button print.
Dessert: DMC embroidery thread, linen tape with bird stamp and partners initial on the reverse, linen measuring tape to finish.
Finished! The pinnie bit was based on a little block in Kumiko Fujita's book ABC Patchwork Lesson (now out of print), called St Johns Pavement, I like this block a lot! Stuffed with fibrefill as it has a way to travel and I don't want customs getting all touchy about walnut shells etc!
I can only just bear to part with it...x
Come the weekend, this blog will be celebrating birthday number 1, you know what that means, giveaway time!
