This little cross stitch is made for a lovely girl who lives in Singapore, I really hope she will like it! I love the old wood sewing spool, it belongs to my mother and law.

Brazilian Influence

These are my latest creations, the top right is called "rain forest", the bottom is called "Brazilian summer set". These fabrics were sent to me by my friends in Brazil, Carol Grillo and Fa Giandoso. The challenge for me was to take the Brazilian fabric and mix it with my own stash and create something special. I had a great time doing this. I let the fabric tell me what the idea for the pouch would be.

Fabric store in Brazil

This is the fabric store in Brazil called Maluhy it is located in Sau Paulo. The city is the largest in Brazil and is located in the South East of the country. I love this shot it looks so old world for some reason. Very different from the quilt stores in the USA. I wounder how they get to the fabrics???? I think they have some help. Wonderful shot taken by Fa Giandoso.
