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

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.
