The Mailman Came!
Friday brought the mailman - first was a gorgeous Thank You from Leah who was the recipient of my package in the Sewing Love swap. She sent a beautiful card and some gorgeous scraps for me to include in future projects. The other was this gorgeous fabric from Sandy Hendersons Farmers Market range, I was very restrained and only ordered two pieces, though I am sure there will soon be more of this range in my collection, the colours are very vibrant and suitable for various projects. I had a couple of friends visit on the weekend and we did some stitching in between eating and drinking. I finished these three animal stitcheries whose pattern I found in an old Handmade magazine. I used variegated threads the cat and dog are DMC's and the rabbit is an Anchor thread. They are to be made up into bookmarks according to the pattern.
