Finishes & Clamshells & Chocolate Cake.

Time has gotten by me again but i guess lack of interest also played a part in almost no finishes for July. But this morning i took myself in hand & sat & sewed all day. Result? 2 finishes. :)photos 065

Unfortunately not a good shot but it was the only way to get the whole hanging in. I started this maybe 6 years ago & it’s been a top for quite a while. last month i dragged it out & basted it. It’s all stitched in blue & is of teapots, teacups & names of tea. One of my favourite things to stitch 067

Not sure when i started this one but i bought it as a kit several years ago at the craft show. Lovely table  topper covered in butterflies & flowers.

And of course being the last day of July it’s clamshell day. All i’ve done is make more ready for when i make a decision on what exactly i’ll do with them.


Thought you might like to see some photo’s of a cake my son made. Very sickly sweet. Took him hours to make.DSCF0001

The inside. 3 layers. Lots of sugar, chocolate, icing sugar & philly cheese used. Oh course flour & eggs. Middle layer is full of white chocolate.

Good for you with two finishes. LOVE the tea quilt!! I love everything tea related. My clamshell progress was a little slow this month also, I just stiched down about 26 shells. The cake looks very yummy!!

Congrats on your finishes Jeanette & I love the blue tea quilt too! I had a set back with my clams this month & haven't progressed as far as planned, but never mind, there's no rush. That cake looks absolutely divine....yum :)

Two finished quilts. That sounds good!
I like your start of the clamshells. I am curious what you are going to make eventually.
And I don't look at the cake. I am trying to loose weight. (but it does look yummy)
