Colourways...

Do you remember back in July when I made two new Christmas designs in country colours?
One of them was a stitchery I'd chosen to frame in a quilting hoop...
But being the pastel and shabby gal that I am, I simply had to re-make it in my favourite colours, with the addition of pretty applique and pieced border.
I'm almost finished, and can't wait to show you how this one will be framed, but for now, here's a peek...
Which one do you like best?

Last month I gave new subscribers to my magazine a gift. It was a special Shabby Roses pattern of mine, the 'Shabby Roses Cushion'...


 ...and this month new subscribers were gifted with my pattern for the cute 'Country Roses Tea Cosy'...
 Well, I have had so many emails from readers asking me to list the patterns in my shop!
It's so sweet to hear how much some of my older designs are loved - thank you dear ladies. xx

Today I have done as you asked, and both patterns are now listed HERE, and as they are older designs of mine I've priced them at just $2 each.
Both are instant pdf downloads, so you can begin stitching tonight if you like!

It's just 18 hours until I send out the new issue of Elefantz HOME. My proof readers have found my typos and they have been repaired. \o/
They help me offer a fairly nice read through the various projects. 
((thanks girls xxx))

I'm off to finish that stitchery so I can start another!
Do you do that?
hugs
Jenny

  8. Christmas red and green is always nice. But OH, your pastel Christmas is beautiful, I vote for it.

  9. What a quandry! I'm not adamant about green and red for Christmas, so I could go either way. I do love the little applique addition and the squares border, so ... I think I have to make it both ways! Thanks for offering the patterns in the shop.

  10. Hallo Jenny, toll finde ich dein neues Design. Das pastellfarbene gefällt mir sehr gut. Allerdings ist an Weihnachten bei mir rot/grün angesagt. Also das wäre auch sehr schön.
    Liebe Grüße Annerose

  12. I love both versions of your Christmas project. I really love the thought of using pink at Christmas. It is so different.

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
