* Daisy-Do* BOM - block 1!

Thank you for all your wonderful messages of support and encouragement, and all your prayers!
We are plum tuckered out from all the house-hunting already, but we have one particular house we'd be happy to move into...we're just waiting for a call back to say we can see inside. Keep praying. :-)
~~~~~
Here it is, block 1 of my new free BOM, ~Daisy-Do~...
You can download the pattern HERE

Please leave a comment with a link to your blog as you stitch the blocks - I can't wait to see what fabrics and threads you'll use! The focus of this BOM is embellishments, and letting the buttons, beads, and threads bring *life* to the simple designs. Be as creative as you like with it - maybe you have notions you've been saving to use some day? Why not let this be the day. :-)

I'll share block 2 on August 1st. Perhaps you'll make a few of these by then in all different colours? The finished size of the wallhanging will be 11 x 34 inches. It's a long one, perfect for those wall spaces that need something narrow. 

NEWS! Blossom passed her Learner Driver test today!!! \o/\o/ 

Hugs
Jenny

  20. I hope you get that "yes" phone call today. I've been praying mightily on your behalf.

    That's a cute block, but I'm going to be a lurker on this one. Personally, I'm not a flower person, and I don't collect embellishments like yours. But it's a very lovely piece. It will be fun to see how others stitch it up.

    Blessings!

  22. Hey Jenny,

    I tried to leave a comment last night but couldn't. I can't imagine having only two weeks to pack up and move when you're not even sure where you're going to find a house!

    Blossom's stitches are beautiful; she has your talent :) And congratulations to her on getting her permit.

    Thanks for the little bird pattern and now this one. You are very generous.

  23. Hope this is the house that God wants for you and that you can get moved and resettled soon.

    Looks like another great quilt in the making - thank you for sharing it with us.

  25. Jenny,
    How are you? I have fallen so behind on reading blogs and I miss seeing what everyone is doing :) Love your new BOM! Oh, I think I may be getting back into stitching...maybe I could take just a little break from sewing to do that :)

    Good luck with the move!

  59. Hi Jenny
    I like the new BOM so far, but I do have a question. My favorite colours are blue turquoise green and pink. Does it matter if the brown leaves are made in green?

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
