Today has been International Embroidery Day in Sweden, Queenie posted about it here: http://queeniepatch.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/30th-july-international-embroidery-day.html
So, in honour of IED I announce that I have finished my embroidered flower piece from the workshop at Country Roads Quilters and made it up into a table-topper.
Also, I am sharing a beautiful haori that my friend, Ros, received from Ichiroya last week. It is covered in tiny French knots and is absolutely glorious. Even the tacking is wonderful!
Today has also been Piglet's birthday. Sam has his birthday in the depths of winter, not a lot of fun for parties in the garden and so today, Sam is exactly six and a half and we had a Teddy Bears' Picnic for Piglet! A good time was had by all.
