Friday Show and Tell (a day late)....

Before I do a post about the move and the new house I need to do what will become a regular posting, Friday Show and Tell - photos of what you gorgeous girls have been doing with all my designs! 
Sit back, and ooh and aah with me over this week's lovelies....
We'll start with Amanda's 'Little Bird in Tree' which she made into the sweetest purse...
...and Cottonreel who always grabs my attention on her blog with her crochet edging. She used 'Little Bird in Tree' for some pillowcases! 
From BubzRugz we have a button embellished 'Little Bird In Tree'...
...plus she has an array of beautiful Bouquet blocks like this finished on her blog!
Look at what Penny used her Little Bird in! I love Dresden blocks....
 ...and Anne-Lise used the stitchery in a pretty bag for her grandaughter!
Lida in the Netherlands used both Little Bird stitcheries...
Anita made her stitchery into a placemat...
 All these Daisy-do's from Dot, Marika, Cheryl, Cyndi, Debbie and Karen and Jytte are so pretty!
 All of them so different and all so fantastic!! We are going to have some amazing Daisy-do wallhangings when we finish all the blocks! :-)
Last, but not least, is Narelle's completed "Wonky Houses" wallhanging, and if you look close you'll see that the background fabric is all tiny houses - how cool is that!?
~~~~~
I'm sorry for not having links to everyone's photos, but I am so tired right now that I am making mistakes all over the place. Would you ladies whose photos have appeared here leave a comment so that everyone can visit your blogs from your links, please? Thank you so much!! :-)
I'll be back tomorrow with photos and a chat (after some sleep)
Moving sure takes it out of a gal! But I'm not complaining...
Hugs
Jenny

  16. Wow, those daisy-dos all have such different looks, I may have to do them in a couple more versions, besides the black, brown and tan. The one done in brights has a real appeal for me since I have 3 grand daughters. Thanks to all who submitted their versions too. Cyndi beetreeesigns.blogspot.com

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
