Block 2 "Postcards from Heaven"...

It's the 1st of February and that means it's my sweet friend Allie's turn to share a new postcard pattern with you!
Here is her "Postcard from Heaven", block 2...



Beautiful, huh!? And the fabrics she's chosen are gorgeous, too. 

Allie is stitching her blocks in redwork and using the KJV as her text, whilst mine are being stitched to compliment the fabric I've chosen for their final display, and the wording will be more conversational some months (my own design months) or written from a modern Bible text during Allie's design months.
I'm also adding little embellishments like buttons or beads, and leaving sections of my postcards unstitched (the Scripture reference, wavy lines on the stamp, and 'postcard')...

Head over HERE to Allie's blog to download her postcard pattern and you can be stitching within the hour!

Missed Block 1?
Don't fret, the first block is still available from my Craftsy shop as a free download if you've just heard about this free BOM recently (all the info is HERE). Over the course of this year Allie and I are tag teaming our blocks so in December we shall have designed and gifted you six postcards each.

 Here are Allie's first two blocks together...


We pray you are mightily blessed!



I've had a number of requests lately to re-issue the full pattern for The Lord's Prayer quilt.
This was a free BOM I shared through 2014 and includes 26 stitcheries and a quilt pattern to embroider and piece the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples.

You'll find it HERE on my shop again as a free download.




Have a wonderful week!
hugs

  6. I do like your beads, Allie was right. Thanks for re-issuing The Lord's Prayer. Just this week someone was asking me about it and I saw it was gone. Now to see if can figure out who that was. =)

  7. Good Morning Jenny! Such a delight to see all of the beautiful stitching on your post this morning and every other post also. They always fill me with a warmth. I will be downloading definitely, but it may take some time to stitch with all of the other stitching that is going on in my life right now. It is so fabulous though to have these beautiful projects to charm my home or to give as gifts. I will surely be downloading the Lord's Prayer Quilt how spectacular! Thank You Jenny! May your day be filled with Love and Kindness. Have a fantastic creative day!

  11. Oh I love both versions. I need to get my sewing room back in order so I can start creating again. I know I have The Lord's Prayer traced out and in a box somewhere.

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
