WIPW - May I treat you to one?

It is time to report on the progress made since last Wednesday; that is what Work In Progress Wednesday is all about. You can read more about this on Pintangle, see other's work, and of course share your own with the rest of us. Come on, join in!

Kafferepet
I have quilted a leaf pattern of TAST #14 Stem Stitch underneath the platter of 'Sju Sorters Kakor' (seven kinds of biscuits).
May I treat you to one? Full of fibre and not one single kcal!

 You might also spot ordinary running stitches around the appliquéd biscuits.

Swedish Cushion
Here I worked Split stitches (no TAST number) for the swirls and outlines. I then filled in the shapes with random straight stitches and #14 Stem stitches before
 covering them with #13 Satin Stitch.

  1. Would my satin stitches look better if I filled them in first? I enjoyed your biscuits with my morning coffee.

    1. The edge will always look better if you have a stitched outline underneath the satin stitches. If you want a padded look, add lots of stitches underneath, but for a flat surface you don't need them.
      I'm glad you enjoyed the biscuits!

  2. Thank you. Everywhere you go now, the shops are full of St Valentine chocolates, so the biscuits are 'off season'!

  4. I just found your delightful blog through pinterest. I LOVE the fabric you chose for the plate! (Although I had to look twice to see if you'd stitched the blue around the edges of it.) Thank you for all the lovely inspiration!

    1. Thanks Emily for visiting and leaving such a kind comment. The blue fabric is hand drawn and based on a real china pattern. You can read about it here: http://queeniepatch.blogspot.jp/2013/04/wipw-china-and-ox-eyed-daisy.html

    1. The quilting stencil I had fit just perfectly on the block and those leaves stuck out from underneath.

    1. There is only one problem with these health kicks - with no sugar they aren't that delicious!

  11. I can't say no when you offer the treats -they are looking so appetising. I like the plate as well. I know from before that you did the design with a pen. The effect is striking.

    1. These biscuits may LOOK tasty but I bet the ones you made for Christmas actually WERE!
