Tasty enough to justify purchase of an embroidery machine!

They are really lovely and I'd be really proud to wear those.
Please can someone define what steam punk is, I keep seeing the expression used but haven't a clue what it means, I think it's my age  :S

Surest1tch, I don't think it's your age :) I had no clue what it means either, had to ask Mr. Google:

Mmm fab designs. I love steampunk and I am ancient! I particularly like steampunk jewellery and I've made a Victorian style blouse from clockface fabric with clockface buttons - sort of every day steampunk. Haven't yet managed to match the fabulous creations of Demented Fairy, TSP's queen of steampunk!
