Eye Candy | Freeform Embroidery

July 30 is always World Embroidery Day – a day when we celebrate the slowness of stitching and enjoy the company of needle, fabric and thread.

The fab fabrics I got in the Fabulous Fabric Swap became a Quilted Laptop Bag! A quilt-as-you-go-bag! And QAYG is indeed an abbreviation to remember.
