So what did I do while my internet was interrupted?

Goodness me - have I been away for 6 days already!? The time just flew by! And why?
Well, I was working on this....

...and this...

...and this...

...and this!

Yes, indeed, I was a busy girl. I did not waste time but applied my fingers to hard work and my mind to new avenues of creativity. And I loved every minute of it! :-)
I should take a sabbatical from the internet more often - it's amazing how much got finished, designed, started, and finished again!


I decided it was time to give you a glimpse of how I'm going putting together my Shabby Roses BOM quilt. Now, I know you'd like a peek at some of the future blocks, and I'd love to do that, but do you really want me to spoil the surprise?? Of course not. I'm proud of you all for being patient.
So now you understand why I've coloured in blocks 7 and 8 in this top row of the on the photo to enlarge it. It's much easier to see where I'm going with the design.

This is the layout with the blocks in their correct position. Aah!!! I HAVE given away a secret after all - now you know the names of the blocks yet to be shared. ;-)

I'll show the fabrics close-up in the next post.


Here are some Wonky Houses finishes from clever stitchers!!

Terry has hers all stitched now...I love it, Terry!

And Ruth has stitched hers vertically to hang on a narrow wall - it's fabulous!!
(I have edited this as I incorrectly named Ruth as Kirsten, but Kirsten is her sweet daughter)

I promised you a free gift last time didn't I?
Check back tomorrow....

    Love the sneak peeks. May need to go shopping for Shabby Roses sashing (wow, try saying THAT out loud) this week.

  11. Thank goodness only your internet had a problem, I started thinking maybe you had been ill. Sometimes I also spend to much time at the computer just like you say, and none of my sewing gets finished.
    Glad to hear from you, your posts are always so inspiring!

  12. Looking beautiful and love the feedback from the other girls!
    Hugs - lurline♥

  13. Patient? ME? Not on your life, girlfriend! I cannot wait to see what you've been up to, the sneak peeks are making me drool already. Darn I wished I lived next door to you. I'd bring you exotic coffees as an excuse to get into your sewing room.

  14. Hi Jenny, what's that?

    My quilt is on your blog... !!!!!!
    Thank you very much for your positive feedback!
    I cant wait to see the whole new pattern with that lovely yellow heart!
    PS: I have only one more thing to say:
    name is Ruth, Kirsten is my eldest daughter, she often helps me to translate my blog because my english is not as good as hers!

  15. Wow you have been a busy lady :-) Thanks for sharing a peek.

  16. Oh but you are a tease today aren't you! lol! What I can see looks wonderful Jenny! You've had some fun on your days away from the comp... Maybe that is what I need to do, to get things done! 8-)

  17. I love your sneak peeks...looks like lots of fun things!!

  18. It is amazing what we can get done when we are not on the computer and your have been really creative.
    What great wall hangings Terry and Kirtsen have done.
    I have finally finished my first three blocks. Check out my blog when you have a minute.

  19. Hi Jenny,
    Oh, thanks for giving us a sneak peek.

  21. It looks very lovely Jenny, the sneak peeks are very enticing! Keep up the great work!
    You go girl!


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...
