I have finally managed to get my animal alphabet collection of all 26 designs online ready to sell.

http://www.embroiderycrazy.co.uk/shop/store/collections/animal-alphabet/

These would look great embroidered onto sections of a patchwork quilt. They would also make a terrific child’s alphabet book. Purchased individually the designs would cost over £50,  but as a collection we are selling them for the bargain price of only £19.99. So if you own or know someone who owns an embroidery machine then this is a great buy.

Now I had a great time wandering round our Classic Car show on Sunday and as it was a gorgeous day I did take lots of lovely photos so here are a couple of my favourites.

I love the blue flames on the front of this one, but my absolute favourite was this beautiful  gold Panther Corolla below.

Isn’t it stunning? And finally one more –

This lovely old 1940’s Austin. A real British vintage car. There were lots of great American classics, especially Chevrolets, and a whole row of TVR’s in a rainbow of colours, to which my Daughter’s response was “Keys??”

I am just test stitching the final design in my animal alphabet! It has been a labour of love deciding on which animals to use and then making child friendly embroidery pictures of them. I mostly use Janome software, which I really like. I think the designs would look great on a patchwork quilt. Uploading them all will take a while but they should be in the shop soon.

We had a fantastic evening out on Friday at Newmarket races, followed by a Texas concert there. Charlene Spiteri has a great voice singing live and despite pouring with rain I really enjoyed it.

It has been thundering here this morning. I managed to dash out and mow the lawn moments before the downpour came!! It is a little cooler now so hopefully will be able to sleep tonight.

I haven’t posted for a while as I have been very busy on a large project. I have been designing an animal alphabet made up of individual designs from A to Z. So far I have got to the letter U in designs and have test stitched A to M.

I hope to get them all finished by the end of next week. They will then be available on the website as a collection, which would be ideal for a patchwork quilt or a fabric alphabet book. The designs will also be sold individually.

We are finally getting lots of rain on the North Essex coast. Our garden is looking much happier and I don’t have to spend hours watering it!

I went 10 pin bowling for the first time ever this morning. I was really bad at it! But it was great fun and I will go again soon as I enjoyed it a lot. I can only improve as I came last in every game!!

Meanwhile here’s a photo of one of our beautiful sunsets.
