Show & Tell...plus Feelin' Groovy is back!


Who's been stitching some Elefantz designs?

Joy in Bundaberg used the combi van and peace sign applique sections of my "Feeling Groovy" cushion to make bags for her three teenage granddaughters. How cute are these?!
 Ava in the USA is running a retreat very soon, and as gifts for all those participating she used the monograms from Monogram Mondays to stitch the cutest bunny pincushions!
How blessed are the ladies who receive these!? 
You're a very sweet lady, Ava.

 Back in 2010, when I was part of the now dissolved Gum Tree Designers, we designed and stitched a quilt for the Fresh Hope Organisation, as a means of fundraising for them.
They were able to publish the design and sell the patterns to help with their charity's financial needs.
The quilt had 9 feature blocks (from the 9 designers), and 9 verse blocks, plus some lovely piecing.
During the floods of 2011, one of the co-designers, Vikki, auctioned off a set of the quilt blocks. They were won by Debra Schefe, and recently she finished this beautiful quilt and emailed us photos.
Debra changed the actual block layout, and WOW, isn't it gorgeous!?

Another special lady, Elfriede, recently used blocks from my Shabby Roses quilt, and also my Bouquet quilt, to make one very special quilt! It's so beautiful, Elfriede.

By popular demand, my original "Feeling Groovy" pattern in now available as an instant download HERE in the shop!
 
 

 Flush out your inner wild child and start stitching! You know you want to...

Hugs
Jenny

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
