Just as the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland ran past shouting to himself, so I will declare also, "I'm late, I'm late, I'm very very late...!"
Friday's Show & Tell is a Saturday this week because I got so caught up in my new quilt design yesterday! I have good days and bad days with my fingers, but yesterday was a good one so I made the most of my reprieve and traced, fused appliques, and even began stitching one of the blocks...
A "Shabby Circle of Life" should be ready to show you in January, along with two other new Shabby quilts. Can't wait!
Now, Show & Tell!
Carla Louise has added her own style to my Daisy-Do blocks and made this beautiful version for a dear friend. Visit her blog for more photos - they are a treat!
And Gaby in Germany sent me photos of her newly completed Shabby Roses quilt! I think this quilt will always be my favourite design, and it has blessed me so much to see so many of them made across the world and all done with the stitchers special unqiue signature.
Gaby, this is beautiful!
The pattern for Shabby Roses is still available through my Etsy Shop HERE.
If you are in Australia or NZ you can find some of my designs published this month in these three magazines...
The project in Patchwork & Stitching is a Christmas recipe book cover. Christmas in Australia is a summer affair so I appliqued a trifle to the front and used lovely summer colours! I made this back in May and had to post it off to the magazine so it was wonderful to receive it back again last week as now I am going to be filling the plastic sheet pages with lots of my family's favourite Christmas recipes - I even added our surname to the cover so I can pass it down 'one day'.
If you are not able to purchase the magazine but would like to purchase the pattern for this recipe book cover, please email or leave a comment and I'll add the pattern to my Etsy Shop for you.
A gift arrived yesterday from Anna! Aren't I the blessed girl!?
Anna showed on her blog how she had made these beautiful ornaments and now I have one of my very own - thank you Anna, I will treasure it. :-)
Time now to make a cappuccino for Mr E and myself, then settle down to some soul-nourishing reading before the busyness of today begins.
God bless and hugs,
