International Embroidery Day and a Party

Today has been International Embroidery Day in Sweden, Queenie posted about it here:

So, in honour of IED I announce that I have finished my embroidered flower piece from the workshop at Country Roads Quilters and made it up into a table-topper.

Also, I am sharing a beautiful haori that my friend, Ros, received from Ichiroya last week.  It is covered in tiny French knots and is absolutely glorious.  Even the tacking is wonderful!

Today has also been Piglet's birthday.  Sam has his birthday in the depths of winter, not a lot of fun for parties in the garden and so today, Sam is exactly six and a half and we had a Teddy Bears' Picnic for Piglet!  A good time was had by all.


  1. Some beautiful embroidery, and happy birthday piglet! A great idea! A friend had triplets a week before Christmas so they have their own day: one on 19 March, one on 19 June, and one 19 September!

  2. What a great day to complete your embroidered table topper. It is BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL and BEAUTIFUL!
    So is Ros's new haori.
    Great party, Piglet!

  3. I can see Queenie smiling over this post all the way to here.
    Gotta love that party!

  4. Apparently Harvey got home and asked Rachel, "Mummy, when is Gruffalo's birthday? Can we have a party with cake, like Piglet?" Oops, think I might have started something here!!

  5. the piglet party is a wonderful idea and looks like everyone had a fun time. table topper is lovely, the colours are soft and perfect with the small prints and stitching.


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
