Shabby Roses HOME - blocks 11 and 12!

We move house tomorrow - our big day is just 24 hours from now! \o/
Keep the prayers coming, my friends. Strong male arms are needed to help, and no rain too! Rain is predicted, and as we're moving our belongings in an open trailer that would be pretty ghastly.

With an hour to spare this morning I've made time to share the next Shabby Roses HOME blocks a couple of days early...



Block 11 - w & x...


...and Block 12: 'little houses'.


Download these blocks as free instant PDF files HERE in my shop.





I'm imagining this time next week. 
In a new-to-us home...
...preparing for Christmas...
...unpacked.
Filled with Hope. 
Settled.

Mr E took me shopping on Saturday for my Christmas gift - a proper chair for me sewing table; one with a secret compartment under the seat where I can hide chocolate sewing items.
We bought it at Echidna Sewing here in Townsville...


...and were served by three lovely ladies (Lyn, Gail and Rhonda). 
Two of the girls are readers of my blog, so I'm sending Lyn and Gail a big hello today.
What a happy place to shop!


Back to moving.
See you in a week or so!

hugs 
Jenny

Such a beautiful and very gentle. What a pity that I have not entered into a joint sewing, if I start now, I still do not have time
