It's been a little while since the last Show & Tell, but sit back and enjoy because some very talented ladies have some Elefantz projects to show you!
Sue Butler stitched her version of "Elizabeth's Dress" and to add even more class she beaded the roses around the hem! Gorgeous, Sue!
Debra Schefe was the lucky winner of a full set of "Springtime" quilt patterns (a joint project by 8 of the Gum Tree Designers, and my daughter Blossom to raise funds for Fresh Hope last year). She has stitched three of the nine main blocks, and all the poem verse blocks already! The block in the photo below is my 'Raindrops' block...
The patterns for "Springtime" are still available through Fresh Hope HERE.
Jytte has been stitching the blocks from my free "Give Thanks" BOM. She shared with me that as she was stitching the block, "Shelter in the storm", her husband opened up about his own experience of sheltering for 7 hours in darkness during a fierce storm in Greenland many years ago. The verse has a very real meaning to them both.
Is there a Give Thanks verse that has meant something special to you?
My friend Robin in the US has finished her Shabby Roses quilt! It's beautiful, and a real labour of love...
Ladies, you make me so proud. Each of you have made an idea formed in my head to be something very special indeed. Thank you!
Now to something else that made me smile!
A year ago I designed the "Morning Glory" tea and coffee sets...
... and before I sent two of the items away to be published I asked my very talented friend, Jeanette, if she'd be my pattern tester. She made the designs her own, and they were so pretty!
Below are photos of the tea cosy, tablecloth, and tea cupboard. I love how she fussy cut her flowers!
Thanks so much for being the best pattern tester, Jeanette!
I have had a migraine all day, and it is still simmering away now, but I did not want to miss sharing this Show & Tell.
Have a wonderful weekend, and be sure to tell someone how much they mean to you,
