firstly for those of you into purple Sampler Watch here is the next wip pic … apparently she has now worked the length of the fabric..
you know i was looking at it, i reckon it would look awesome as a Pinks sampler or a Blues sampler… blue silks.. hmmmmmm, cos after all i have a Purples and pinks sampler on the go, something to ponder me thinks
the craft fair was fun, though too many people and i was so tense i ended up with a head ache and exhausted, took me 48 hours to recover from the exhaustion of being confronted by masses of people all talking loud and touching me.. well bumping into me anyway which always makes me tense..
I saw lots of pretty things, some amazing artwork and espexcially amazing timber work, especially with our beautiful fragrant huon pine. For some reason this year paul went on a chocolate/fudge spending spree honestkly ui think e ended up with about 4 kg of handmade fudge and chocolate products!! as well as lovley spicey plum sauce, peach chutney ( perfect for his curries) apple worcestershire sauce, ginger beer from my friend the ginger beer man, shortbread bilbies with little chocolate dipped bottoms… too cute i had to buy them for me and the boys….who came too btw. umm i bought a stash of my fav homemade jersey carmel made with fresh cream from the cooks dairy, she is a lovely lady i tlk to her twice a year at big festivals, she makes amazing rocky road too with cashews instead of peanuts. We bought chocolate, choc hazelnut, mocha, jaffa, choc raspberry, fruity nut and choc walnut fudge!! and a D’anvers goodie bag that had , a large box of truffles, a box of choc orange segments, 2 boxes of their fudge in choc orange and choc mocha, a 250 g bag of choc pieces and something else that i can’t remember…
i am sure i have missed stuff thing is i was buying stuff for mum at the same time and i wasn’t sure what was mine and what was hers by the end of the day.
i was looking at terri’s wishlist, which is a master piece in its self and she reminded me of what the other samplers where i wanted to do before i die..
actually only one is there but it made me think of the other one for some strange reason…
Kaleidoscope Ink Circles
Alphabets and frises Reflets de Soie which i have the chart and the floss for actually
Firstly the new improved wip of the patchwork sampler with the changed green, i went with Monet Green from Gloriana in that sectio, you will also see i did a section of a new purple to the right , that is another Gumnut stars silk, one of the hyacinth range
Next is Elenia, the chances of all of her showing up are zero, i sooo i will do a link instead I need someone to show me how to do thumbnails here.. i can’t make them work atm.. not much to look at this time as i was really disciplined and just did single stitches for a week
edited to add i had 6 goes at editing the silly thing to show Elenia and i give in hence the link
