New designs!

I've been busy showing you peaks of new designs on and off over the last months, but today I will be offering four of them for you to purchase!

~Oopsie Daisy Table Runner~
is gorgeous! I find that wide table runners often get in the way when you have guests for coffe and cake. They don't leave a good flat space for a mug and plate, and some resting elbows. So this runner is a long, but narrow 11 x 41 inches....
 

~Buttons 'n' Bows Bag~
So many of you commented on this design, and others asked about a pattern, so what could I do but say 'yes'?! It's perfect for using charm squares, you know. :-)
  

~Feeling Blue Cushion~
This is another design that had a number of you emailing to ask 'where is the pattern!?', and finally, here it is. I loved working with linen in the stitched block...
 

~Keep a Cup of Kindness Handy~
For those who love something with a sentiment that expresses the very heart of who you are, this is a beautiful framed applique and stitchery design. It was inspired by my love of the television show, The Waltons. Though struggling through the Depression with barely enough to provide for their large extended family, there was always a cup of coffee and meal to be shared with a stranger or a friend who had dropped by unexpectedly. 
This would be such a wonderful sentiment to hang in your kitchen, or to give as a gift to someone who has shown you hospitality. :-)
 
 
All these designs are now available for $4 each as pdf patterns HERE in my Etsy Shop.
I will email them to you within 12 hours of purchase. :-)

Here are two lovely Show & Tells for this week!
Maria has made her hanger and 2nd verse in my BOM, 'Give Thanks', and used fabrics from her stash!
Dawn has finished her hanger too, and two of the verses...
 
How are you going with your GIVE THANKS hanger and verses?
Next week I'll have something extra to share with you for using with this BOM. 
Hugs

  1. Jenny, when do find time to do anything else? Do you sleep? Breathe? Eat? My goodness, but your creative energies are boundless. To design AND sew them, my goodness, but that takes time! I am always busy, and I don't accomplish 1/100th of what you do. As always, your work is wonderful!! ~karen

  9. Jenny,
    I love the new designs; very, very pretty. My favorite is the "Keep a Cup of Kindness Handy" as I grew up near Walton Mountain in Virgina (not quite during the same time period)lol...and the Waltons was a favorite show to watch. Lovely new designs.

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
