It's been a crazy busy month and despite lots of ideas for the ink theme I left it until the last minute again!! I came across a cute vintage elf embroidery pattern on pinterest, it was credited to Crafty Modern but despite lots of googling I can't find the original pattern so that's as much info as I can give.
My daughter was recently given some brilliant pens for her birthday, some of which are glittery! I asked her if I could borrow them and got to work. I traced the image using my lightbox and had lots of fun picking the colours:
Here's a weird lighting shot so you can better see the glitteryness!
I think it makes a cute festive card!

I received more fabric goodness and some yummy Aurifil this week from Pink Castle Fabrics:
from left to right: Floral Bouquet in Blue, Old New 30s by Atsuko Matsuyama; Cherries in White and Red, Old New 30s by Atsuko Matsuyama; Daisy Grid in Gray, Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa; Cottagely Posy in Teal, Priory Square by Katy Jones and Aurifil 50wt #2600 - my favourite colour for hand piecing.
I seem to have developed a thing for florals!! I love the vintage vibes of those Japanese prints and the bright colours of the beautiful Priory Square. I guess these will be finding their way into my green tea and sweet beans quilt too ;)
