A week of celebrations - block one of Bouquet and a giveaway!


Five years ago this month I began blogging as Jenny of Elefantz.
At the time I was a homeschool mum whose life was about to change; I thought I'd be sharing things I'd made as a recent newbie to stitching and quilting and nothing more.
But I love to write, and as a side-line I discovered I could design too.

So here we are, five years later, and so much has changed from that first post!
I'm celebrating the blessing that God has given me:
... the sharing of a tiny portion of His creative self in my life
... allowing me to draw what  my mind sees
... to stitch those sketches so they make pretty eye candy
... and to write and publish my own online magazine!
God is good!

In 2010 I shared a special Shabby Roses quilt over six months on this blog, and I called it "Bouquet".
This week I am going to share those quilt blocks once more - over six days!

This is the full quilt...
 ...all stitched and pieced in pastel. The fabrics I used were Robyn Pandolph's 'Somerset Cottage'.

Today I am sharing Block 1 with you...
'the chair'
The pattern for this block will be available until September 30th.
You can download it free HERE in my shop.

 GIVEAWAY!!

What's a celebration without a giveaway!?

Leave one comment on this blog post with a valid email address or blog link where I contact you if you win.
The prize is...
* a sweet bundle of fat quarters and fat eighths from Helen Stubbings new fabrics, 'Nice People Nice Things'
* a 27" square of white hanky linen - my favourite fabric to embroider on!
* a Zig Millenium pen - the only pen I use to trace my designs onto fabric!


 I'll draw a winner on Monday 16th September!

See you tomorrow with block 2...
hugs
jenny

Happy 5 year Blogiversary!!! (that doesn't look quite right, but that's what my spell check said...)

I just want to tell you, that you have inspired me to start to learn how to embroider. You create SUCH beautiful work. If you set up all your work to show, like in a museum, I could spend DAYS just staring at the pretty things. I hope one day, that I will be able to confidently know what looks pretty like you do! Thanks so much for taking your time, and sharing with us on your blog, mag, and your awesome patterns. Please don't think we are all grubby give-me's. I really appreciate it. I know it takes SO much time to take pics and write in a blog. Thanks again!!

Hi Jenny,

Congratulations on 5 years and Thank you so much for sharing your Shabby Roses quilt. I thought about suggesting you have a Shabby Roses book published sometime, with all your gorgeous Shabby Roses designs, so we, your adoring fans, could have a keepsake of all your work. Have you ever considered it and has any savvy publisher approached you about doing so? Just a thought.

Have a wonderful day.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching,
GrannyB.

Hi Granny B :-)
No editor has come calling my way,but I am working on a couple of book ideas behind the scenes on my own.
It's only my limited time that makes this a slow process.
You're so sweet, bless you!
Hugs
Jenny

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Happy 5th Birthday, Jenny. How kind of you to share this pattern again. I have it saved from the first time! A while ago my Mum who is in aged care asked me if I would make a special gift for one of the ladies who works there, who is so kind to Mum. This lady is a committed Christian and choir member, so I stitched your " Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you" and framed it for her. She loved it. Thank you for your generosity over the past 5 years. Hugs, Sandy.

Susanne said...
