Another Friday Show and Tell!

You ladies have been so busy!! My inbox displayed these beautiful projects over the last week and I couldn't wait to share with everyone what you'd made!
Denyse has her Give Thanks hanger all completed, ready to display the verses I'll be sharing through 2011...
Sloveig has finished both the Give Thanks hanger and the first verse, and altered the hanger design to suit her own style!
Another lovely version of Give Thanks was made by Sue...
Cheryl has made a pretty pastel version....
Marit has also finished both the hanger and the first verse!
It's wonderful to see so many pretty Give Thanks BOMs appearing in my email inbox! Thank you ladies! 
~~~
Remember my 'I Wish You...' wallhanging that I shared on our Gum Tree Designers blog last year? You can see it HERE.
Carmen used the stitcheries to make her own wallhanging design, and she embellished it with the design from my free Shabby Roses bookmark around the edges. Isn't it beautiful!?

And my last show and tell for today is Penny's version of my Daisy-do design, which she made into hanging pockets for her rulers! This is so clever that I am wanting to remake one for myself. Thanks for this brilliant idea, Penny! :-)
 ~~~~~
I'll show you where my newest family member likes to spend her time while I sew...
She thinks it's the best game when I drop my scraps in the bin. So easy to please...I'll just have to make sure I sew lots. :-)
~~~~~
Thank you to everyone who is donating sewing items and help with postage costs to our New Beginnings appeal through the Gum Tree Designers blog!
The response is overwhelming, so please forgive me for not replying to emails, comments, or reading your blogs and leaving comments. I have these wonky hands that won't play nice and I need to use them as much as possible for the appeal emails and making caddies. Soon, I will get chatty again, promise. :-)
Hugs
Jenny

Hi there,
i was trawling around anfound your Union jack tutorial. I made mine last night and my two daughters both want me to make them some!!! Thanks for the tut. It came together really easily and I amazed myself at the speed in which I had it finished.

Thanks
Cherry

Penny said...

Thanks Jenny. One thing I love about your designs is that they are so versatile! Gotta start working on the Give Thanks BOM :)

Allie said...

Look at all the give thanks completed - I'd better get busy - picking out my fabric tomorrow! Everything looks wonderful, especially Penny's ruler pockets - amazing.
Awww Sophie is too darn cute...I bet she keeps you on your toes!!!

Hi Jenny,
I just love to visit your blog (I find myself checking it practically every day) You are greatly inspirational and a wonderful motivator. I bought your Christmas Quilt from the Hobart craft fair last year and sent you photo's of which you shared on your blog. Since then I've been working hard at designing some of my own things and who knows where it'll go. I recently set up my own blog and for someone who isn't terribly computer literate I'm still learning what to do with it, you may like to check it out someday at:www.nellieputthekettleon.blogspot.com.
P.S. I was reading your blog the other day and found myself relating to your story of loneliness, this is something many of us struggle with and yet I find I know you quite well, please let it be known I find your blog a friendly place to visit.
Thanks Jenny, from Lynnelle
