Chocolate is good for you!


I tend to disbelieve almost anything I read in the newspapers but I am prepared to make an exception for the article with the headline: Chocolate is good for you, which featured prominently recently. I used it as inspiration for the ATCs I made for the Colour Groupies this month when our colour combination was Coffee and Chocolate.
I drink my coffee as strong as I can get it and black so that is the background colour for these ATCs. It's machine quilted black velvet.

For the chocolate part I took a photograph of the contents of a box of chocolates and printed it out on fabric and then appliqued it to the coffee background and surrounded it with chocolate coloured size 11 seed beads. The text was typed on my computer and also printed on fabric.
The contents of the box in question has long gone and I must go and buy another one soon, purely for medicinal reasons, you understand!
