It is such a joy to have friends. I met friends last night at our favorite little hole-in-the-wall. It is so fun to find out what is happening with them and to show them stuff I'm working on. Sometimes I'm a bit isolated in my sewing room.
Marilyn asked what fabric I used for the strawberry I finished yesterday. It was a piece of linen that I got at Stitchville called Chestnut, 32 count.
I got several pdf patterns from Casa Cenina. They asked designers to donate patterns that you can buy for 10 Euros each to raise money for Greek earthquake victim relief. These are some of the patterns I bought:
I accidentally bought the same pattern twice. Oh, well, it is for charity.
