Building a stitchery (and a little competition)...

I'm working on one of the new August designs for The Stitchery Club.

It began with green...






....and moved on to a pop of rusty red.









Tomorrow I'll introduce another hue, maybe a softer rusty tone.

I'm glad to have plenty of August designs to stitch. Blossom is having a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions so things are on the move and I need my mind and hands to be occupied while we wait for 'that' call.

How about we have some fun while I wait?

Blossom's having a baby girl. 
What name do you think she and her DB have chosen for their soon to arrive daughter? If anyone guesses correctly I'll send you some fabric and thread after she's born and her name has been confirmed, okay?
(you can only leave one name in your comment)

hugs

  4. I have no imagination, they say, and I can't think of a possible name. But I wanted to stop by and leave a comment on the sweet stitchery! Love it!

  5. God's angels have been around Blossom and this baby since conception and everything they have been through. Angel would be a perfect name for her.

  9. Here, people often use a grandparent's name as a middle name. I'm thinking maybe Erin Jennifer ___. I love the stitchery! Jenny, I do not ever see how you come up with so much beauty in your stitcheries. You have a style, but every one seems different and fresh, and so, so lovely. I am going to really enjoy stitching this one, maybe on a pillow cover. Here's hoping the call comes right on time. =)

  10. I think she will name her rose!

  11. Good Morning Jenny! I enjoy the sneak peeks that you give us on the projects you are creating. Your hand embroidery stitches and designs always bring smiles and happy thoughts. I hope that your stitching helps to calm you as Blossom and the Grandbaby are beginning the journey.

    I am going to go with Esther because this precious life has been strong and a fighter from the beginning. Her life is going to make a huge difference!

    Have a fantastic creative day!

  12. I don't know why but the name Sadie came immediately to mind. Hope you are feeling better and everything goes well for Blossom and the baby.

  13. I think the name will be Broide.

  14. Beautiful stitchery. Love the green and then the pop of color.
    The name Hannah comes to mind for Bonnie's wee little one.

  15. From all your blogs I think Faith would be appropriate. I'm sure whatever she picks will be just right

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really don't have a clue. I could say Jennifer after her grandmother. But since she is Blossom, maybe she will name her Flower. Others have already said, Angel(a), Faith, Rose, Lily. Along the flower line for names I was thinking Violet or Petunia. A young woman in my church called her daughter Nevaeh. Another lady called her first daughter Hypatia. One of my sister-in-laws called her first daughter Sharon and the last two, Blessing and Majesty.

  20. It's going to be Pearl!

  21. Love your stitchery. Hmmm, no idea about the name but I know that Angel would be perfect for a child with a mum like Blossom. I guess the names Angela and Angelica are based on this.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Like a few others, I am guessing Pearl.

  28. Gorgeous pattern and stitching emerging Jenny, ooow exciting time, close now hope Blossom and yourself enjoying better health. Name, that is hard one, many oldies making resurgence, wow how popular is Pearl in the list and Rose, how about Ashley, was going to say Asha but that is close to your Aisha, can't stop at one, Elsa, Laura or Olivia, Emma, Emily or perhaps Cate or Jade, or Grace, best stop there and sending wishes for all the best to Blossom and yourself and good to hear about your wonderful time up the mountain with special friends.
    Hugs, Judithann:-),

  33. Oh Jenny,
    it is so beautiful! The only thing I could say when I say it was ... oh my god, I love it! One day I will have to try and stitch one of your stunning designs.

    I hope you are feeling much better again these days and life is being kind to you and yours.

    Many hugs,

  34. My favourite Poppy, has gone, so I'll say Serena. Your designs are beautiful.

  35. My daughter's name is Sarah Grace, after my grandmother Naomi Grace, so of course I love the name Grace.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think Blossom will name her baby Pearl and maybe Elizabeth as a second name. I think Pearl Elizabeth sound lovely.

  37. Loving this sweet Stitchery. I cannot guess a name for Blossom's Baby Girl because names are so very special and personal. When I gave birth to my one and only daughter I chose her name and everyone around me kept telling me how awful it was and how everyone would call her Jenny...like a mule or donkey. I stayed strong and she has never ever been called Jenny. I named her Jenifer Michelle and I still love her name and her even as she turns 49 this August 7th. Blessings to Blossom and Baby and you Jenny Dear...

  38. Not long now. My guess is Rose or Rosie. Whatever Blossom and her DB choose will be lovely, I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beautiful pattern Jenny. So awesome that you will soon be seeing a new grandchild. I am going for Gracie. A beautiful name and meaning. Blessings.

  40. This is such a lovely design, Jenny....but then all your work is just lovely!! I especially love those cute little lady bugs!!
    I actually think Jennifer Rose would be a beautiful name :) But whatever she's named I'm pretty sure she's going to be a blessing to her family x

  43. I think "Daisy" would be an adorable name for Blossom's baby girl!! I'm praying all goes well with the birth.

  44. I was going to say Rose as well so will stick with that. Hope all goes well for her. Can't wait to see her and I bet you are so excited!
    Love Alison

  45. I think Poppy Eliza would be a beautiful name. Best wishes to Blossom. Love your stitchery Jenny.

  46. I wish I'd gotten here sooner, but the name I had chosen before reading the comments before mine is Faith. I'm sure their choice is beautiful. Love your new designs!

  47. Love your colors on your stitchery. I think Ella Grace would be a lovely name for Blossom's little one. Can't wait for the news she has arrived!

  50. Hi Jenny, I didn't enter the name competition, names kept coming to mind and just thought of Ruby, excited to hear when baby arrives and hear of the beautiful name given her, wonder if anyone will have guessed it, though so many to choose from often comes down to just a chosen few, for us just the one for both girl and boy (that we both liked), (think our daughter shares same name as one of your daughter's spelt differently, with y in place of an e) Almost missed out on our boy's name as hubby's cousin had a son just prior to our daughter's arrival (lucky we had a girl first) and cousin chose same boy's name but when our own son arrived it was still our chosen name so went with it and it has only caused a problem with same surname once when both boys were attending Tafe many years ago. Fun special times ahead for you all. Wish for both yourself and Blossom back to good health by then. Hugs, Judithann :-)

  51. The cyber demon ate the first part of my post! I like all of the names that have been suggested. Several of them are names of various family members! I'm partial to the name Julia as that was my mother's name so will go with that for your new granddaughter's name. It could be either Jennifer Julia or Julia Jennifer actually. I like them both! She could be JJ for a nickname.

    I read in your previous post that you were up in the mountains where it was very cold and rainy. Could you please box some of that up and send it to Texas LOL We are forecast for 103F today and being in semi-arid West Texas it's almost a Chicken Little experience when water falls from the sky LOL

    May God grant you a blessed day!

  52. Hola mi querida! Creo que el nombre será Bella Jennifer!

  53. Hope Blossom and baby are in the best of health. Baby name??? Elise/Elyse,( 'pledged to God'), a pretty diminutive of Elizabeth.

  54. I have been reading your blog for quite some time! So very happy to see that you and your daughter are well and beloved baby girl will be here soon. Can't wait to see what name Blossom has chosen. My pick is Esther, a lovely Bible name, since this little girl will the the Queen of her household! God bless you and your beautiful family. ----Valerie

  55. I know it is a long shot, but my guess is "Lyric".

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...
