A free design, and lots of peeks too...


I shared this design last year but as the blog has many new readers a year later I thought I'd share it again.
It's a wonderful promise for all those who love the Lord to live by, and take to heart.
Perhaps there is someone you could stitch this for? I stitched mine as a pincushion for my friend Michelle on her 50th birthday.

"Freedom"



Pattern available as a free instant PDF download HERE in my shop until December 31st 2013.


All the projects for the November issue of Elefantz Home E-zine are completed, so let me show you what you'll find inside to keep your stitchy fingers busy!

This is my "Girls, girls, girls!" issue, and the projects were designed to suit a range of female age groups...

Dottie Dog Handbag for little fingers to carry...



MUM framed stitchery with separate templates for mom, mam, sis, and mamae...


Garden Bloom bell pull for yourself, a friend, or maybe your sister...


The larger Potted Hearts bell pull in traditional colours for those who like a more formal design to hang in their home...


Tree Happy ipad sleeve for the teenager who has everything (or the mum like me who loves her ipad!)...



2014 love birds stitchery for use on so many projects including THIS diary cover I shared the tutorial for in yesterdays blog post...


...and the third mini quilt from my "Seasons in Redwork" series!

...Summer Mellow...

 Slightly different this time, as I've used lovely cotton lace for the binding!
And isn't my duck really 'hot'?!

 This issue's book review is Caroline Zoob's "Childhood Treasures" and I'll show you the tiniest little embroidered button that Blossom made, inspired by this book...


There is still time to subscribe to this coming issue, but you must do so before October 30th, as the magazine will be published a few days earlier this month. 
I'm having a few days off to relax and refresh, so the e-zine will be sent to all subscribers on the evening of October 30th (instead of November 1st).
All subscription information is HERE

 Now I guess I'd better write the patterns and the e-zine!
Big coffee first though...

hugs
Jenny

Oh, I love that verse! Thank you for sharing your talents :) They truly are a blessing to your readers!

here here I so agree with Heidi. the sneek preview looks good, the bag is top of my list as I have promised to make some things for a charity stall, recently lost a friend to cancer and her family are raising money for the hospice that cared for her so will contribute to the fund raising which is all to do with craft makes.

I have a friend who will love the top cushion and the verse. Thanks for tempting me - now I just need to find time.....

Oh what a lovely little bag! That will inspire many Granny's (like me!) to make a lovely bag for the little girls!
Also the other patterns look fab! Hugs

Looks like another great issue! I could spend all my time making your designs. Too bad I have other responsibilities. LOL
