Love your patchwork on this one and the colours are so cheery! Thanks for showing us your work space too, I love to see where other crafters do their *thing*. I've never seen *Mallow Cups* They sound delish. Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes to munch on something yummy to get my creative juices flowing.....well, that's my excuse ~ and I'm sticking to it. ;-}
