Textiles on a Tuesday!!

I don't know where LAST Tuesday went, but it left me behind somewhere!

Never mind....it's been great in between then and now :-)

We've had a little break down in Cornwall with Bloke's Dad....

....visiting St Ives....



...and Mousehole....




...to take LOADS of cottage piccies to turn into stitched thingys later on :-)

We called into the Creative Stitching and Hobbycraft show at Exeter on the way home...

...and met up with lovely friends Jamie and Kim.(Her blog is here.)

Of course...I just HAD to make a few purchases didn't I...?

More beautiful print blocks from Jamie...










...and some heavy pelmet Vilene from Kim...

...that I've painted with Cosmic Shimmer Mists.






Such FUN is on the cards methinks!! :-)))

I've been stitching a bit too...

Another Punchneedle sample is done...



..and quite a number of these little panels are on the go...







...that I'm currently stitching with these....



Oh JOY!!

Wonderful post! I LOVE the 'hand' stamps - what fun a person could have with those. A whole series comes to mind.

I see that those hands are greatly appreciated here!

...I'm playing with them today...

...so maybe you'll see something you might NOT be expecting in a couple of days ;-)
