A Couple of Finishes

Well I didn't think I had been achieving too much, but I have got a couple of finishes to show you.  My friend Janet has a big 60 birthday in a few days, so Michelle's gorgeous booklet of stitcheries  "Please Come to Tea" immediately came to mind as the two of us love to share a cup of tea, and when she flies up to visit her old quilting group in Brisbane each year, she always calls into the Brisbane Tea Centre to bring me home a nice packet of flavoured tea.

Hard to get a photo of the three stitcheries I chose from Michelle's book (available for purchase from her at Rag Tag Stitchin"), but I was very happy with how it turned out.

Wish I had bought more of the pretty fabric.


And seeing a photo of Shez's finished Vintage Sewing Collage from a workshop we did with Gail Pan last year reminded me that I had also finished mine recently.


I had fun raiding my vintage sewing bits and pieces and old buttons to finish it off.  It's on loan at the shop where I work for now, but I have a spot ready on my sewing room (cum spare bedroom) wall for it. Cheryl

Your tea stitcheries have turned into a lovely gift for your friend. How appropriate a choice.
And another lovely finish on the Gail Pan piece too. It does look great.
Always good to have some finishes.
