It’s a party!!!

And you’re invited!

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee the wonderful people at The Making Spot are hosting a virtual street party. So hang those buntings, wave some flags, pour yourself the great British cuppa (or even some champagne!) and join in the fun.

To start your celebration stitching, I’ve designed this Jubilee cake band which you can print off and start stitching while your cake bakes in the oven! If you’re more of a ‘Mr Kipling’ kind of baker, then your cake will be ready even before you’ve got your threads sorted!

The colours used were            Red DMC 666
                                                White DMC 5200
                                                Blue DMC 797
                                                Black DMC 310 (back stitch one strand)
If you don’t have these thread colours, simply use whatever reds and blues you have in your stash….any will do!

The great thing about this cake band is that you can use it for lots of celebrations. All you need to do is change the ‘Diamond Jubilee’ wording or even leave it out altogether. With the red, white and blue colour combo, this would be great for those 4th July celebrations too! Change the colours to pastel pinks or blues and, voila! Celebrate the birth of a baby!
Birthdays, weddings, engagements, graduations…this designs has you covered (or at least your cake!) for them all.

To print off the chart simply click on the picture, then right click and then click ‘print picture’. If for some reason the chart doesn’t print, just let me know and I’ll email you the chart as a PDF.

So…what other craftyliciousness is there in this street party? Head on over to the party hosts here  and there will be a list of all participants.  There will be freebies, discount codes, tutorials, crafty projects… a veritable cornucopia of ‘craftyness’! (wow, where did all these big words come from?!!) Keep checking back to The Making Spot throughout the day as they will be highlighting different projects every hour….and you don’t want to miss out on any of the fun.

And as if you don't already have enough on your to-do list....I'll be giving away a free chart with all orders placed on my website over this street party weekend. (Offer ends  midnight Sunday 27th May 2012. Chart is of my choice)

Anyhoo,  please, please, please don’t be a party pooper! Leave some comments when you visit the various blogs and websites that are involved in this street party and spread the love!!! It will be great to see how many countries this street party reaches.

Until next time…happy virtual street partying!
