Last post before we move...

This is my last blog post for another 8 or 9 days...by which time we should be settled and unpacked in another house.

Thanks for your prayers; please keep them coming.
Specifically, for Mr E to have help with all the physical moving of furniture and boxes (hard to get helpers on a weekday), and also for no rain on our moving days of Tuesday and Wednesday. 
((thank you))


Before I sign off I wanted to leave you with some 'show & tell' photos sent to me by blog readers who have been making my designs. They are so lovely!

Rosanna has completed my "Circles of Life" quilt!
(pattern is HERE)
She designed her own layout for the blocks, and reduced the size of the centre block. Wow - I want to make mine again - hers is an inspiration!


Gunn has finished my Shabby Roses "Beauty" quilt, is up to date with the "Daisy Days" blocks (and designed her own layout, which I love!), and made my Dissappearing 9-Patch runner from the other day too!
(Gunn's photos were tiny, so they are fuzzy, sorry)
 

And lastly, Fiona used three of my free Wonky House blocks to make a really sweet table runner!
In fact, go HERE to her blog for Fiona's simple table runner piecing tutorial...


Thanks for sending me your photos, ladies! 
You're amazing!


And lastly, I have some things that caught my eye, and which may come in handy for sweet projects.

From Amy at Nana Company (and she has a giveaway)...

From Kerri at Lovely Little Handmades, this excellent cathedral window cushion tutorial (excellent for using your stash)...

...and from the lovely Kaaren at The Painted Quilt, her last First Friday Freebie for the year!


be blessed while I'm away
you're in my prayers

hugs

  9. Dear Jenny,
    I'm thinking good thoughts for your during this move. How on earth do you do it? In 48 years we've had one apartment and two houses.....I'm the person who need roots and would feel groundless having to move a lot. My kids and now my mostly grown grandchildren all say the same thing: they know that home is 'here' and they have a good 'anchored' feeling.

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
Jenny
