How was your Christmas Day?
Mr E and I were guests at Blossom and her beloved's home this year and what a wonderful time we had! This is the first time in all my mothering years I've not hosted Christmas lunch - and I have to confess, it was very relaxing indeed. In fact, my sweet girl has taken the baton from my hand and done herself proud. Next year will be even more special as we'll need an extra seat at the table - but more about that another day. LOL!
First Block of the Month 2016
Today's blog post is a reminder that I'm sharing two Block of the Month projects in 2016 and the first one begins on January 1st.
This is a gorgeous free Christian BOM that my friend Allie is designing with me and we hope you'll love it too. Allie and I will take turns each month through 2016 sharing a new 'postcard' pattern from "Postcards from Heaven" with you.
I'm first with the January block, and Allie will share her first block in February.
Each month I'll add the download link for the pattern blog posts on a special page so you never miss them - just click on the "Postcards from Heaven BOM" under the 'pages' list at the top of my sidebar to access it.
Second Block of the Month 2016
The second BOM for 2016 is completely mine. "Gentle Domesticity" was birthed in my heart last year as I journeyed through A Year of Gentle Domesticity.
Over the past couple of months the things that truly matter were magnified in my thoughts more and more each day, eventually coming alive in sketches and phrases, and finally as designs made with needle and thread.
This block of the month begins on Tuesday, January 5th.
There's no quilt pattern at the end.
These are twelve individual heart-felt blocks which you can use any way you like.
Each one has a message to inspire, and I'll expand more as each block is published through the year.
Each pattern will be free for one month.
Each month I'll add the download link for the pattern blog posts on a special page so you never miss them - just click on the "Gentle Domesticity BOM" under the 'pages' list at the top of my sidebar to access it.
Read my motivation for this project HERE.
You're welcome to add both the BOM buttons to your blog sidebar if you're joining in.
Just link back to my blog so your readers can find it and stitch along with us.
Oh, you might have noticed I've given the blog a pretty makeover.
She looks how I feel; happy, content, blessed and gently domestic.
Until New Year,
