Romeo Roses at last, and a giveaway!



You have been so patient waiting for me to have the pattern for Romeo Roses ready for purchase.
Thank you!
Today, I can finally say, "It's ready!"

~Romeo Roses~
(click on the photo for a much larger view)

The pattern is in my Craftsy Shop HERE, and it's an instant PDF download, so you can begin stitching it today!


There are just four different embroidery stitches used, and I have included stitch diagrams, as well as large close-up photos of the actual stitching in Romeo Roses. 


 The pattern also includes step-by-step instructions for preparation and stitching, plus an idea for alternate thread colour choice.
I think you'll love it!

Elefantz HOME E-zine Volume 2 Issue 1 has been published, and all subscribers should have received their copies by now.
If you are not a subscriber, but would like to purchase this issue, you'll find it HERE in my shop today as an instant download. It's jam packed with new Elefantz patterns and other goodies!




GIVEAWAY time!!

It's been a while since I have had a giveaway, but in celebration of my Elefantz HOME re-launch and releasing the pattern for Romeo Roses, I just wanted to bless you.

Remember these Elefantz designs?

Miss Molly Moo Quilt
Rose House Sampler Quilt
Cutie Key Fobs
Buttons 'n' Bows Bag


Well, I have two bundles of these paper patterns to give away!


Would you like to win one?

 

You have two chances to win!

First chance : leave a comment here on this blog post. Just one comment, and you must leave a way for me to contact you, whether through your blog, or an email address, in case you win.
If I cannot contact you I will draw another winner.

Second Chance : go HERE to my Jenny of Elefantz Facebook page, and share my post about the giveaway on your own FB page.

I will draw one winner from my blog comments, and one winner from those who share my FB post.
You'll find out if you are the lucky winners next Friday, April 12th. 
Good luck!!

Have a wonderful weekend! Mr E and I have planned a Saturday evening ride up to Ingham (about 100 klms north) for dinner. Can't wait!

Hugs
Jenny
