A free design and a Starter Kit giveaway!




I had hunted through my fabrics to find a similar palette, and found three that worked beautifully together. After choosing co-ordinating threads I put everything into a zip lock bag to wait for a design idea to form.
Last month I went away on my 4-day retreat to Mission Beach, and the night before I left that idea came to life!
I sketched it, traced it onto fabric, packed it in a little project container with the threads, and took it with me. In that secluded cottage on my own I sat quietly one night listening to an audio book on my ipod and I stitched my idea into life.

You see, I have this Bible. The kids call it "Mum's fast flickin' Bible" because it's so old and so well used (and so underlined and highlighted and written through) that I can find any passage or verse I want very quickly...

Last birthday Kezzie sent me the prettiest journal, and I thought how nice if I made a bag to carry my Bible, journal and pen with me when I head up the mountain for my quiet times...
So, yesterday I set to work on it!
Here is my new stitchery...
~ true peace found in Jesus ~
...and here is my completed bag!
It has room inside for either my 'fast flickin' Bible' or my larger study Bible, a front pocket for my journal...

...and pen pockets on the back.

The base is boxed to give it a nice flat bottom...

I love to share free stitcheries, especially when they glorify our Saviour, so please accept the 'true peace found in Jesus' design as a gift today from me to you.

It's a free instant pdf download HERE in my shop.
Be blessed, my friends.
PS: Tell all your friends and bless them too, ok?


And now to something else I want to share!

After the amazing response to the few tutorials I've shared over the last couple of weeks, I thought it would be really nice to have a giveaway.
Now this giveaway is really special for two reasons. 
The first is because this is my 1,007th blog post! Can you believe I write that much!? I hear my friends shouting "YES!!"
The second is because the prize is a starter kit of my favourite things to use when I stitch!

The kit consists of -
* a Zig Millenium pen for tracing designs onto fabric
* a piece of white hanky linen for stitching your design on
* a piece of Weaveline to fuse behind your traced stitchery before you begin to embroider
* two pretty Cosmo Seasons threads to stitch your project
* a pack of my favourite Birch size 9 embroidery needles so you have plenty of lovely sharp ones on hand at all times
* a large piece of pretty tonal fabric
* and I'm also adding in the paper pattern for my 'Colour Your Heart' stitchery!

Would you like to win the Elefantz Starter Kit?
It's easy to enter the giveaway!

Just leave one comment on this blog post. 
One comment for one entry. That's all!
 I'd love you to tell your friends of course...

GIVEAWAY CLOSED
Winner announced here on August 20th blog post.


Winner will be drawn on August 19th when I share the next two blocks of 'Shabby Roses Home'. 
 Tomorrow I'll share a sneak peek at them...

hugs
Jenny

More than that, as I repost every one of your Facebook postings, I feel like I'm sharing a little bit of goodness and beauty with more people that I might never know. It took all of that to say that your generous Spirit has led me to start crafting for charity. I am crocheting baby blankets for premie babies. As well as embroidering little gowns for the younger babies that perish before leaving the hospital. You are an inspiration. Thank you. Of course I would love to win your give-away!

  103. Thank you for the lovely peace pattern. And I love your bag you made. it looks very very nice. Congratulatiosn on that many posts. Wow blows me away. It will take me years and years to post that much as slow as I am. What a wonderful and extremly generous and very helpful giveaway. Of course I would love to win. Since I seem to be so full of questions about what to use and how to do everthing as I relearn how to embroider and I have allready found out I had no clue what I was trying to do years ago. So many new products and things to do....And Embroidery is now becoming mor eimportant to me than sewing as it is so much more relaxing and I can do it virtually anywhere.Thank you for the chance to enter. I will probably be offline a few days as I leave in a bit to head to hospital as today is D day ......

  158. Hello Jenny, I love your Bible bag, it's just beautiful and I really need one for my Bible. Thank you for the Pdf. Congratulations on writing 1007 blog posts, I haven't read them all but I've read quite a few and enjoy your inspiration tremendously. As to the starter kit, it's so cute this is perfect, I've been trying to get my neighbour into hand work and this would be the ideal thing to get her going.

  182. I am always so grateful when you acknowledge your faith and trust in Jesus--the author and finisher of our faith. In the U.S. a lot of preachers concentrate on prosperity as mainly financial or material wealth. Your postings seek the greater "wealth" of faith and trust in the One who has done everything for our salvation. I am always blessed through you!

    Thanks for the creativity and generosity!
