A few weeks ago we celebrated National Stitch Day here in the UK. Naturally, my local branch of the Embroiderers Guild had to be involved!
It will be the Branch's 20th Anniversary this year so they are celebrating with an Afternoon Tea Party later this month. They decided to keep with the Afternoon Tea theme and host an Open Day for the National Stitch Day celebrations with the projects all being Afternoon Tea related.
First up though we were asked to create lengths of bunting to hang around the town to advertise the Open Day.
They looked quite effective flapping in the breeze :)
As I was manning the door this was the only project that I had time to make!
It is also the closest that I will get to a doughnut as I really don't like them. Childhood memories of seeing doughnuts sizzling in large pans of oil on a weekend trip to Blackpool have scarred me for life as far as eating them is concerned. Isn't it funny how some experiences can have such a long lasting effect? Fortunately I have never come across anything in the chocolate making process that has had a similar effect upon me :)
What about you? Are you a doughnut fan or not?
What a yummy donut! Has anyone take a bite of the backside yet?ReplyDelete
Love the doughnut ideaReplyDelete
Thanks I cannot claim the idea sadly!Delete
i am not a doughnut fan--too sweet for me--but I do like croissants...;))) yumReplyDelete
And I do like that sewn doughnut pincushion --what a creative idea..
and the shirt pockets, what can I say--very clever for sure and cute!! .hugs, Julierose
Your donut pincushion is so great! That's the perfect type of donut, too. Zero calories, lasts forever :) I used to love donuts, but now they are too sweet for me. The big donut selling chain here in the states, Dunkin Donuts, makes decent bagels so that's what we purchase there :)ReplyDelete
I love your shirt pocket pocket bunting idea and the doughnut pincushions are fun. It sounds like it was a great day :)ReplyDelete
I have visions of your husband walking about with pocketless shirts and his toes peeking out of his socks!!ReplyDelete
You have been busy.x
Wish I didn’t like doughnuts!!! Yours are great and so’s the bunting!ReplyDelete
Using shirt pockets for the bunting is a cool idea, Fiona. Yep, I'm a fan of doughnuts.ReplyDelete
