An early moving gift - Block 6 of Shabby Roses!!!

Good afternoon ladies!
With only a few days left before we leave here, and then a 2 week break when I won't be blogging due to no internet whilst relocating, I thought I'd give you Block 6 of my Shabby Roses BOM a couple of days early!
Unexpected presents are always the nicest ones, don't you think? :-)

~~~ May I present REST... ~~~

This is my personal favourite block so far. I hope you like it!
The sentiment REST is such an important one. We can become so busy in our day to day lives that taking time out to rest and refresh may elude us, so as you stitch this block I hope you let that little word take hold in your heart, and you make time each day to let go of the world and take a few minutes to quietly sit back

You can download the pattern for REST HERE.

NOTE: 'Rest' is now available to purchase as part of the blocks 4,5 & 6 set in my ETSY store.

Remember, I keep the free blocks up for a limited time, so blocks 4, 5 and 6 will only be available free until August 1st - which is when I will be sharing block 7.
Blocks 1,2 & 3 are available for purchase from my Etsy store.



  1. Oh Jenny I love it! I think it's my favorite so far too - but I think that with every one of them. I'll be so glad when you're in your new home and can rest yourself. Oh dear, what am I going to do without my Jenny fix for two weeks!

  2. thanks jenny, that block looks very fine.
    best wishes for your new home
    much greetings

  3. Oh! Its SO lovely. I will bear in mind the word but me being a mother and housewife I'm afraid the summer vacations aren't the perfect time to put it into practice....

    Thanks so much!

  4. Hi Jenny, the new block is lovely and so is your new look blog. Love it. Not long now......

  5. Hi Jenny,
    Oh, I can see why its your favourite.
    Thank you again for a pretty block to add to the rest of the great designs you have created.

    Good luck with the countdown and shift.
    Stay well.

  6. It's beautiful Jenny. All the best for your move; try to enjoy the trip and, wow, the excitement as you explore and unpack in your new home! *grin*
    Thinking of you in your travels....

  7. Oh Jenny it's soo nice Now you have really thrown me I thought I was going to stitch a wee pressie I got in the mail today but both are soo lovely I dont know which it will be now.
    lots of hugs and thanks again I agree with Allie what will we do for two weeks other than be happy for you all being together again.

  8. Thanks so much for that - I am home sick with the flu. Only 4 more sleeps.....

  9. Dear Jenny, this new block is fantastic and represents perfectly my idea of "resting". For me resting is sitting on rocking chair, under a verandah, stitching, listening to sound af nature, looking at a fantastic view while my thoughts flies away (hope you understand what I'm trying to say...I don't have the dictionary with me).
    Thank you very much for all these wonderful gifts.

  10. It's beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. Best wishes in your new home!

  11. Awwwe. Yes This is just wonderful. I too think this is the best block, so far. I just love it, the boot is just cute. Reminds me of my younger days and DM's.. (Dr. Martins Boots) which I loved. Hugz xxx

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...
