With Sugar and Cream

Saturday, July 30, 2011
I feel as though I am on top of most things now, after our wonderful holiday.  The magazines are still piled up waiting to be read.  I like to savour every page after a quick flip through, so they are sitting there waiting for time to indulge in that luxury.  The anticipation is part of the joy!  Handmade Patchwork Annual has my table Topper "With Sugar and Cream" in it this month.


Here it is in the magazine:


DH saw it on the cover - I didn't even notice it down the bottom:


You can see I should have lived in the Victorian era:







Yesterday the Community Association of our local township (well, we probably are more a village than a town) held a Family Fun Day, celebrating our wonderful area.  It was really well organised and lots of people attended.  They held a photo competition and I entered two photos in the Nature section and won first prize for the Black-winged Stilt below, and highly commended for the other. As you can guess, I was very pleased!



And one last photo to finish.  Gina very kindly sent me a photo of her lovely version of "My Pantry":

Don't you just love all those great fabrics?

I love seeing what you do with my patterns, so feel free to send me photos of anything you make of my designs.

 I notice I have just reached 400 followers, so I might just have to think about another giveaway!

Hope you have a great week.
