"In My Garden" - 7 designs, 3 projects!

Since I cleared the shelves of my Etsy Shop there have been requests for some of my earlier designs to be returned. (thank you for loving them so much!)
As I have used many of the stitcheries in projects over the last months I decided that I will occasionally offer a limited number for sale as pattern packs. 

The first will be the 'In My Garden' set of 7 whimsical stitcheries, which have now been made into 3 projects!
5 stitcheries have been used as a swag (bunting), perfect for a child's room!
 One has been displayed in the centre of a 16" cushion...
...and another to decorate the front pocket of a large tote bag!
You can make all of my projects or use each design in your own projects! Everything you need is in the $7 pattern pack HERE in my Etsy Shop. 
SORRY - ALL SOLD!!

My stitches are healing very well and I cannot wait until Tuesday to have them removed. My finger, though, is not too good. It's very painful and I cannot bend it. Hopefully the surgeon can shed some light on how long it will be before I can use it normally once more. 
Tonight I shall attempt some hand stitching, but for now I am cooking two big pots of food for the family this weekend - a huge tray of Lasagne, and the biggest pot of chicken curry you've ever seen! The plan is to have extra to freeze....I just need to tell that to my teenage son and his mate before they park themselves indefinitely at the dinner table! 
Isn't it amazing how teenage boys can inhale the entire fridge contents with one (seemingly) momentary door opening?
Have a great weekend,
Hugs
Jenny

Oh' Jenny, I love these colors and designs. And your stitching is just gorgeous.

Thank you for posting about my giveaway. Sounds like we both have healing hand problems but yours was much worse. Hope all is healed soon. I'm on antibiotics myself. And wish I could be at your house for dinner/dinners this weekend. YUM!!!

Hugs...T.

Oh yes, boys have such appetites, I raised 6 boys and they constantly eat me out of house and home, grin. Even now when I go out to eat with my Tommy am amazed at the amount of food he can consume, grin.

Jenny, I love the colors in the "in the Garden"set. Hope your finger keeps getting better, and that all goes well!

Hope your Sunday is perfect. Hugs...Tracy :)

P.S. Thank you for explaining how to add the text now if I can just find time to get it done.

I hope your hand gets better soon. Good luck with your attempt a stitching and saving some of your cooking for the freezer.

Jenny, I think that you have to allow a good 6 weeks for healing and to allow the swelling to go down.
Love that little set. Hope Blossom is feeling better.

Very cute set Jenny!
Hope you hear good news about your finger when you see the doctor next.

I love these! I just found your blog. I jumped over from Raspberry Rabbits. Good luck with your recovery. You'll have the use of your hand back in no time:)

I do love that bag with the tree...
What do you do with your finished items? Do you fold them away somewhere in the craft room, do you give them as gifts, or have they found a place in your home? For example, the bunting, is it hanging somewhere special? Is the cushion sitting on a chair, the family couch, a bed, and do you use the bag for keeping something special or do you use it when out shopping, etc?
I'd love to know and see some pictures of where your wonderful designs end up finding a place to live!

Hi Jenny...just wanted to let you know that it will take a while longer before you are "back to full speed"! I had the same surgery last summer and that finger was numb for many weeks...the stiffness improves slowly but I can say that it is perfect now and was worth the healing time! Blessings, patience and total healing!
