I'm not big on lollies - or candy, or sweets, or confectionary, or whatever you might call them! I probably would only eat two or three in a whole year. When I was a young teenager, I had to have some dental work done. It was a very unpleasant experience in those days so I decided from then on that I would choose to NOT like lollies any more. I talked myself into it and for all those years lollies have just not turned me on.
Now I'm only talking about lollies, not Chocolate! I love chocolate, especially super dark chocolate, but I try not to indulge in it very often! So what do you do when you have fabric in your stash called "Double Chocolat"? I've made a few things from the range already, but I decided I just had to make something to celebrate the sweet tooth.
There's a little shop with a welcoming door:
Jars filled with goodies:
Toffee apples, candy canes and all-day-suckers:
a gumball machine, licorice allsorts and a bag filled with chocolates:
Can you imagine the fun I had making this? The pattern is available in the latest Country Threads Magazine, Vol 14 No 6.
It's been a busy week with four designs packaged to send off to magazine editors. That was a lot of instructions to write, samples to make and templates to organise!
In the package was my latest quilt which has turned out beautifully. My quilter has done a fantastic job on it:
Just love the feathers:
A lovely rope border:
Now I'm working out of my normal zone with some bright fabrics. It will still be recognizable as mine though - plenty of applique and stitching - just vivid fabrics to go with it instead of soft, pretty ones!
Have a great week and happy stitching!
