With the welcome drop in morning temperatures I've been quite productive this week!
My mornings begin with hot porridge and coffee...
...as I read my Bible on the ipad with the Bible Gateway app. It's brilliant because I can refer to Matthew Henry's Commentaries in the same app - and the best thing?
The Bible Gateway app is FREE here on itunes. You can even listen to it as an audio while you stitch. \o/ Thank you Bible Gateway!!
After breakfast it's a quick tidy of the house, and then off to the sewing room. The designs below have been top of my list for the past couple of weeks, and even though it's still 4 weeks until the next issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine is released, I couldn't wait to show you some finished projects that will be inside, plus a sneak peek of one project still in the making...
~An English Country Garden~
I chose the thread colours to match the fabrics from Fig Tree Quilts "California Girl" range...
...which I purchased from the lovely Kris at Lavendar Quilts on Etsy, who came to my rescue after I scoured the internet for a bundle!
Block 2 of Shabby Roses *Beauty*
I am so in love with this quilt...
And a sneak peek of the third project inside the next issue...
Sweet rainy day umbrella stitcheries to be used in a 'little girl' project, and I'll even have some kits available to purchase. This fabric was so popular when I showed it to you last year that I knew I'd have to make something from my small stash of it, and offer a project kit....
But, more about that next week when the design is finished and the kits are made up.

Mr E is counting down the hours till the end of his working week so we can go for a good long ride - but rain is about, and I'm not sure if it intends to visit for long, so we'll have to wait and see what Saturday morning holds for us.
What about you?
What are your plans for the weekend??
