That's teasing when you put chocolate in a post like that! It sure does look delicious.
Beautiful work on the dish towels. So bright and fresh. I especially like the idea of the apple being eaten. Lovely!

Hello Fiona,

I was thinking when I saw your cups that the handles on them remineded me of doughnuts, but I see they are full of chocolate. Enjoy.
Happy days.

Love your tea towel embellishments especially the apples one.
The fabric is lovely too. Don't know what you could use it for. An apron perhaps or a tablecloth.
