old friends, new to be friends and some winners

 Some old friends arrived home today - these are some of the pages from my Postcards from Tuscany 'book' which have been on holiday in Canada - I hope they behaved and were liked. This one is Sienna - believe it or not - very early image transfer I did and surrounded by knitted rayon stitched and attacked.

 This is Florence - we have been to Tuscany three times now and love it. I bought a fabulous cook book when we were there the first time and used it as a tour guide and have cooked almost every recipe in it.

And this is to remind us of the olive trees - they are rubbed with the precious senneliers.

Today I have ironed some of the new sari ribbon - forest - in readiness for my new play. It is much greener than this photo but I love the myriad of colours which are appearing - the ironing takes ages. I shall be working with this in the coming weeks - the background is some silk noil printed with my stitched printing block.

The Thread Studio facebook page has been busy - there are now 714 likes and lots of comments for the giveaway of a parcel of luscious stuff from us. Pop over and leave a comment before Sunday 21st night and be in the drawer. Talking of drawers - I see the post for the radiant rains got to 32 comments so I have 4 sets to give away - just cost you a red bag. The winners are

Fibrefriend (Sue?)

Just confirm who I think you are and I will send them off to you so you can play play play - I have enjoyed reading about people's thoughts on radiant rain....

It would seem that winter is over here and summer is acomin in - the freesias are out and that tells me everything.

Your Tuscany book is wonderful - I knew I had seen those beautiful pages before! The sari ribbon sounds irresistible and if my name was drawn from the hat for the Facebook giveaway I think I should pay the postage!
