I've got a few gifts to show this month.
First up is the VSCyberstitchers July exchange (which happens too late in the month to make the July GG post). Here is the absolutely gorgeous gift I received from Pat
And here is the one that I sent to Marietta.
The pattern is Simplicity 1544, and it is made in a lovely soft ex-Hugo Boss linen, with the contrast details in Liberty Tana Lawn.
I can thoroughly recommend this pattern, it makes a very stylish shirt, though I might be tempted to go a size smaller when I make him another one as there's a lot of ease in it.
I'm going to finish up with a few pictures of the Village Show I mentioned earlier
And a spot of shameless bragging about the cup I won for Best in Show Art, with this pastel drawing. (I've no idea who she is, I drew her from a photo I found online)
Naomi also won a cup for best close up floral photo, and we got quite a few 1st place cards between us, so all in all it was a very successful day.
