Tea anyone - and a giveaway!!

I'm so excited to show you my third and final project for the next issue of Elefantz HOME magazine!
It's a mix of some things I really love - tea, flowers, and Robyn Pandolph fabrics...
This pretty tea set comprises a tea cosy with a different stitchery on both sides, a lavender scented tea pot trivet, and two pretty place mats (because you must invite a friend for tea!)...
 
 
I wanted to take the photos outside on our back table but it was so windy and overcast today I had to opt for inside pics - but I still think you can see how pretty each piece is.
This issue is packed with seven pretty stitcheries that can be used in the projects I am providing, or in your own projects!
 
 
 

Not a subscriber?
It's simple to become one!
For $4 AUD a month (about $4 US), on the 29th of each month you will receive an email containing my Elefantz HOME magazine as a PDF file to download and save to your computer.
 In each issue there are 3 or 4 new Elefantz designs, and occasionally a bonus design from a guest contributor!
I also write from my heart (you knew writing was my other love didn't you?), so be prepared for a read as well as inspiration to stitch.
All my projects have step by step photos and simple instructions so if you're new to stitching you can "see" what I am doing along the way.
You can sign up today using the Subscribe button below. As a bonus I will immediately send you one of my previous issues after I have confirmed your subscription email address - just visit my magazine webpage and browse through the contents of each issue. When I email you just let me know which one you'd like!




You can unsubscribe at any time, with no penalities! :-)

 Don't forget you can also read Issue 1 online for free if you visit HERE.

Blossom is three sleeps away from 18.
I think it must be time for a celebration giveaway, don't you?

If you would like to win my original stitched and coloured 'Flowers for Sale' framed design, (picture above) all you need to do is:

For one entry, leave a comment below!
For a second entry share news of my giveaway on your blog, facebook or twitter and leave a second comment telling me you have done so.

I will draw the winner on Monday night, May 28th!

Please don't cheat. Sad, but true - some people have cheated in the past when I have had a giveaway.

Be sure to leave your email address if you don't have a blog, ok? Otherwise I cannot contact you and another winner will be chosen instead.


Take care my friends, and be sure to enjoy your day!
Hugs
Jenny

  21. Hi Jenny

    What a lovely stitchery as usual. Your new projects for the magazine look lovely. It is hard to believe that Blossom is only going to be 18, she seems older than that from her appearances on your blog.

    Enjoy her special day.

  46. Sou seguidora e estou chateada...Como enganaram...Eu ainda não tenho blog ,não FB e T.Abri minha conta para depois ter um blog.Não é primeira vez que escuto isso na rede,não somos uma comunidade,com afinidades em comum?Eu gostaria de ganhar prêmios,mas com honestidade,se sigo a pessoa é por que vejo alguma coisa que gostei.depois vou selecionando.Ontem entrei em muitos sorteios, e fui seguindo todos,para voltar outro dia e ver quem realmente eu quero continuar,conhecer os trabalhos etc...Um dia eu não vou querer na minha barra lateral pessoas que não são legais.Sinto muito por você e estou te ajudando aqui falando o que eu penso,sacanagem seria a palavra malcriada para quem fez isso .Desculpe.um abraço.

I think of your talent and of their simpler way of life ~ it soothes my inner being and makes me smile! Love in Christ Jesus,
