3rd Friday Show and Tell

Are you as excited as me to see all the lovely things others have made from Elefantz designs?
Sit back and enjoy this week's photos! :-)
From Pam at Creative Dawn, a notebook using Blossom's tutorial and my Little Bird clever!
Carla Louise had been very busy! She made a little purse using my Little Bird in Tree design... a scissor fob...
...AND she finished Block 1 of my Daisy-do BOM!
Jill made a pair of exquisite pillowcases using Little Bird in Tree, and added the prettiest crochet edging!
And to round off the week, let me show you a set of greeting cards that Karen sent me. The photos are her originals, and really are fabulous! I especially loved the owl. Thank you, Karen! 
You can see more of Karen's nature photography on her blog HERE.
I've finally gotten some moments to sew this week, and I'll show you some snippets tomorrow, but today Blossom and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen and after all these years I heard the words I have longed to hear from her lips, "I can see why you get so excited about cooking, Mum! I love it!" \o/\o/ 
Now she's only talking about food. 
Amazing what a few weeks of watching Masterchef can do. :-)

I know it shouldn't but it always amazes me - the creativity I see from other people. Wonderful and thanks for sharing.

Abby and Stephanie said...

Wonderful projects--all of them.

Pretty stuff! I'm especially interested in the pillowcases as I hope to soon begin embroidering my own set, and crocheting an edging. And I haven't crocheted in years!

Isn't Masterchef Australia, great!? How nice that it inspires Blossom. I began watching MC when in Sydney in April/May, and got hooked! When I returned to the US, I found it wasn't available through the MC website. However, I found it on another .org website, and I've been keeping up, albeit about two days behind what you see. So, don't tell me who wins this week! I can't wait to see it for myself... commercial-free, I might add.

Masterchef American begins here next week!

Sounds like you guys are getting all settled in. What better way than with food. I always have the food channel on here no matter what I am doing. Everyone's projects are gorgeous, as usual I am behind. I will get there!!! L,A-

All the projects are just great. I love that little bag and fob. Karen takes some beautiful nature photos. How nice of her to send some of her cards.

Oooh! I love those pillowcases! Well done Jill! And those photo cards from Karen are amazing! Thanks for the link, I'm heading to her blog, as I just love nature photography! That owl is precious!

Allie said...

Ooh such pretty things made from your designs! I finished mine too - finally got my machine running. I bet Blossom will turn out to be as good a cook as her mum!
