4th Friday Show and Tell

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....)

Oh gosh Anita's placemat is darling - all the projects are wonderful! That's what happens when you start with a great design, right?

Your surgery date is on my calendar, so I can keep praying - but I put it a day early, since you're so many hours ahead of me.

Hi Jenny My sweet friend

Lovely things all your work are beeing used for. I hope to get a chance to finish Molly Moo soon,I'm working on thatone right now.

I know you will be SO happy when you are out from the surgery room, and i have no doubt that it will be the best thing ever for your fingers, to have this done.
And i wont be something that's giveing you a lot of pain after, but you will be able to use the hand in no time.
I Still need to get 2 finger's done... :-)
Have a lovely weekend in your new home - All that we have seen so far of it, looks so nice here from the other side of the world in DK.
Happy hugs to you all Down under -
From Lone in Denmark

It must give you such a fulfilling feeling to know you have inspired so many! These are all beautiful! I love how Carrie incorporated the quote into her pillow! You'll be in my thoughts while facing surgery and beyond! ~karen

Another parade of pretties. I just saw Carrie's beautiful pillow on her blog. Surgery isn't something to look forward to but the end result will be you "healed and ready for action."

Beautiful projects Jenny. Your followers are so talented.
I will keep you in my prayers as your surgery date approaches. I am sure you will come through with flying colors.
