Just a Little Eye Candy

I have my next sewing class with the teacher on Saturday , I will post an update after that and hopefully the other girls in the group won't mind me showing you some of their work also.
Next week I am also going to have a giveaway so check back and see what it is.

I have been extremely busy these past couple of weeks , work wise, you know the work that pays for my habit so I don't have much to show. I don't like not posting so thought I would just add a couple of pictures .
This sampler is one I stitched from a French pattern that I had, as I have said in a previous post , I just love stitching in a single colour . The thread I used in this sampler is DMC 309 and it is stitched on a piece of overdyed linen from Birds of a Feather, it was just a piece I had in my stash. These hexagons were made by a friend of mine and this is pure eye candy to me . The possibilities are endless from most pieces of fabric. I am sure a lot of you would have these fabrics in your stash and wouldn't think of cutting them in the same combination
iykwim and yet another one

I have a love of jugs and these next 2 photos are in my collection. Collecting all over floral china a few years back was all the rage and I too got caught up in the craze. I don't display it anymore as it doesn't fit in with the decor but I do have these couple grouped in little collections I have around the place.

This is real 1930's china made by Crown Devon in England. I just love the colour , it is so clear and vibrant. It makes me feel happy especially with so much doom and gloom that is around at the moment.

What a pleasure to look at these lovely photos. I think the fussy cut paper piecing is very elegant.

Those are the most beautiful hexies I have ever seen. Will you be doing a tutorial for those or post the name of the book or pattern please.

I have really enjoyed looking at your blog! I'd love to do an English paper pieced crib quilt using the pattern you show here. (the fussy cut hexagon in the middle and 6 rounded fussy cut pieces on the outside.) HELP...I can not find that pattern. Could you forward my request to the maker of these if you do not know? Thanks so very much!
