I have some gorgeous projects from wonderful blogging friends to show you this week! My July "Little Bird Challenge" has borne so many wonderful projects from you!
Let's start with Anita, who made this sweet placemat, with the stichery framed in ric rac...
...and Pat who used the stitchery to to embellish both ends of a table runner!
Di used her stitchery as a redwork display for a bag....
...and she also finished one of my Shabby Roses blocks from last's years BOM!
Have you made my Shabby Roses quilt yet? Heleen has finished hers and it is *beautiful*! She did all the machine quilting herself, too...
You can see more photos of Heleen's quilt HERE.
My first BOM for this year was ~Bouquet~, and Teresa decided at the last minute to enter her completed quilt in the Mt Gravatt Show. She won 2nd place!! Congratulations Teresa!! \o/
Teresa also won 2nd place for another quilt! What a successful showing she had. :-) You can see more photos HERE.
Now to something very close to my heart. My Lord and Saviour. My dear friend Allie used both of my Little Bird stitcheries to make a wallhanging - but she added something else. The words from a favourite old hymn...
Isn't that precious?
Another sweet friend, Carrie, also used two of my designs in a cushion I *love*! She used Little Bird in Tree for the centre stitchery, but she added the verse from my Hopes and Dreams bag around the edges!
Those fabrics are perfect, Carrie - framed so beautifully. :-) You can see more photos HERE.
Last but not least this week, look at the pretty cushion that Dot made using Little Bird!
Dot and Carrie both used muted colours in their cushions, and they work so well...think I'll need to make one for me! :-)
All of you are so inspiring!! Thank you for letting me share the work of your hands.
If you would like the patterns to the Shabby Roses Quilt, the Bouquet Quilt, or the Hopes and Wishes bag and Journal set, they are all available HERE in my Etsy Shop.
I saw the surgeon yesterday, and I am booked in for surgery on my hand next Friday, August 6th. Prayers are most appreciated.
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back soon with the next block in Daisy-do, AND a new challenge for August! No hints...(zippedy doo-dah, zippedy-ay....)
