I'M STILL IN LOVE........

I'm still in love with Italian embroideries, and am quite behind in sharing with you all, what I have stitched. Away back in May of this year the piece I stitched was Deruta Embroidery. This was a first for me and I loved it, so much so I also stitched another piece for a gift, which I forgot to photograph, however here is my challenge piece again a small coaster 10cm square.

 I found wonderfully clear information on stitching this technique on two blogs.Tutto Ricamo   found here and riccamiamoinsieme.canalblog.com in the blog  archives  And yes I will be stitching this again as the Guild here has decided to do My Italian Love Affair challenge next year. I need to get some more photos so I can share with you what I stitched in the following months.

I don't usually share cooking ideas, but I was so thrilled with this effort,  I found the idea on Pinterest, just a photo with no instructions, it looked so easy to make and it was. Two boxes of frozen cream puffs a little icing and some chocolate leaves. Yes I made my own leaves, however next time will make smaller ones. I made this one for the Guild Christmas party and plan another one for the church Christmas Lunch this Sunday.
Today 1st December is the beginning of Summer here, and after a very wet, wet winter and spring the sunshine is very welcome. I hope there is some sunshine in your day too.
