Is it a coincidence I chose to embroider Saturday and Friday as my first tea towels? What better days than these?

Thanks again to lovely designs by Posie Gets Cozy.

Happy Friday!

Saturday Tea Towel

Originally uploaded by Sew Sydney

We had a fantastic Easter weekend away. Caves, trains, alpacas, chickens and lots of chocolate. The kids were in heaven and the adults had lots of laughs and red wine.

I knew we were going to have a lot of car time ahead of us, so I took along this tea towel to work on. I need to finish the binding on it, but I was happy to at least finish the embroidery.

The design is thanks to Posie Gets Cozy. How gorgeous are these designs and how generous to share with the community?

Mired in laundry and unpacking post holiday, but hoping to hit the machine tonight to work on the baby quilt.

Have a great week!

Home made hot cross buns…..the effort was very worth the reward. Much, much better than the bought ones. Also a great kid activity.
Happy, happy Easter all!

Here is a sneak preview of some of the blocks for one of the baby quilts.  I got the pattern and idea from a Kaffe Fasset book I borrowed from the library.  That man is a genius!  So many beautiful projects and too little time. 

 Easter chocolate and hot cross buns are thick and fast around here.  I am going to attempt some homemade hot cross buns this week.  What could be better for the waistline than hot cross carbs?

Summer weather in fall, but still getting ready for winter. I made a few of these washer necklaces for the winter wardrobe for myself and friends.

Again, excellent tutorial to make the necklaces over at The Small Object.
