This made my day!

Fiona of BubzRugs emailed me about her 'failed' attempt for my T-shirt Challenge. She had blogged about it so I rushed on over for a read and to commiserate.
Honest, I am still laughing after reading her blog post! AND I don't see it as a failure. ;-)
Go HERE for a smile, and cheer up her remade blue t-shirt.
In between cleaning doors, food preparation, and washing, I have been playing with a new design for the next issue of Elefantz HOME...
This one will be framed when it's finished, and already I cannot wait to show you!
Shelley Hobbs designs dolls, and not just ordinary dolls, but whimsical creatures with personalities. Shelley has just been published for the first time in this month's issue of Homespun (the same issue with my "Juliet's Rose" quilt), and I wanted to show you what she made...
Isn't her Ladybird beautiful!? You can visit Shelley's blog HERE and see more dolls from her very talented fingers. 
Last thing to show you today is a few recent finishes of mine! Three new designs, and all were lovely to create and stitch...
 These designs will be featured next year in three different Australian magazines - Creating Country Threads, Handmade, and Patchwork & Stitching.
Now I know that my overseas friends often cannot purchase these magazines, so I have a special offer for you. You can purchase the bundle of all three PDF patterns for $6 AUD by clicking below on the Paypal button. That's $2 per pattern...not bad. :-)

I'd best get back to that Sampler...
Have a wonderful day and be sure to remind yourself how special you are!


  1. Hi Jenny, just had to tell you I am making my miss16 a black canvas messenger bag and on her instructions I bought a vintage rolling stones t-shirt with the idea of cutting out the lips on the front to appliqué to the bag. You can guess who is now wearing the t-shirt can't you?

  2. Thanks Jenny... kind fairy godmother..... Love the new projects you have there....

  3. Your new designs are gorgeous, Jenny, but then again they always are! I visited and read about the Tshirts, it was very amusing. :)

  4. I saw Fiona's blog before reading this. It was great! LOL

  5. Lol, Fiona should write kids crafting stories as a side line to her sewing! I left a comment there too.

  6. I LOVE the look of your sampler - and as soon as dh gets home, I'm getting your new patterns, I'm in LOVE!

  7. Hi Jenny,
    I always enjoy reading your blog and love your projects. I was just looking at your new project and wondering what type of pen or pencil you use to trace of your stitcheries.
    I am having a problem seeing mine and your words and patterns seem so clear.
    Thank you,

  8. Dear Jenny,
    Thank you for the lovely pattern bundle. Your designs are so lovely, I want them all.

  9. I have a plan for an old t-shirt. It's on my bed waiting for a before picture, then I have to find some time to execute it!


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...
