I received some new fabric samples from Spoonflower this week. This one is called Fresh Veggies and has pen and ink with watercolor vegetables in a large pattern repeat. A spring green check with chamomile flowers drawn in sepia ink with watercolor. And a sunflower print in ink with watercolor. Here are a few of the fabrics that compliment each other. Fun for kitchens and summer sewing! And a photo of my garden. I'm so happy my bee balm is blooming so nicely. It takes a while to bloom after it's planted I guess and this year it has finally come around for me. I love the colors of pink. They vary from fuchsia to the palest pink. The bees have been visiting too. Hope you have a good day.

I've started September Morning Glory and I wanted to get all the needlebooks out that I've completed in this series to see which finishing techniques I liked best. I really like the needlebooks finished as May and June were with a border of fabric on the left side. I tried a few larger needlebooks with several fabrics inside and larger pockets. The fabrics are for practicing stitches or sewing on buttons/button collection or scraps of favorite fabrics. I had a book like that when I was learning to sew. I practiced hooks and eyes, buttons and snaps in it. Think I was about 10 :) Having the fabric around the design really makes the colors stand out, like on August Poppies. As I was gathering them up to put them away I thought the colors looked nice so wanted a couple different photos for variety. I love colorful fabrics. June was one of my favorite needlebooks. I really like pink. Hope you have a good week.

Inspired by seashells since it's summer and dreaming of the beach! I'd love to find a sand dollar. A nice whole one just delivered by the tide. A couple more kitchen towels for my collection. I like to collect other people's embroidery when I see it at antique shops and shows. I really appreciate the time they spent to make it! And I'm really happy to have it.
