Sunday, lovely Sunday....

It's been a lovely weekend so far!
Yesterday our son Sam dropped by nice and early for a visit and chat, and at lunchtime Kezzie, Bert and the boys visited me as well. I sent the boys home with frozen Kit Kat's as it was mighty hot when they left, and it's a nana's delight to give small treats to her grandchildren - for the cost of a hug and kiss of course!
This morning I picked up Blossom nice and early and we went out for breakfast.. As she has been involved with Elefantz from the very beginning, I rely on her as my sounding board for future ideas, and it excites me even more to have her excited about the things I have planned.
Together we discussed pros and cons, and in the technical computer side of things she has offered her assistance. I can't tell you anymore, but I think you'll love what's in store. She made a a wonderful start to my day!

This afternoon we're out together again, but this time 19yo son Sam will join us as we head to the movies to watch the latest version of "The Three Musketeers".
Tomorrow I'm off to Kezzie's for morning tea, so I am pleased to say that my kids certainly aren't allowing me to be lonely while Mr E is away! I may need a rest at this rate. :-)
All the projects for Issue 6 of Elefantz HOME are now finished, and the pattern writing has begun.
I thought you might like to see all the things you can make from the next issue, which has a definite bird theme.
The next block in "Circles of Life" is shared this month. It's the large middle block, "Full Circle"...
There is also a companion cushion cover for the quilt in this issue, which features a slightly altered "Full Circle" block...
A couple of very cute and quick-to-make Christmas gifts are these key chain fobs...
And of course there is the "Bird on Bloom" redwork table runner I showed you last week...
...and the applique version of "Bird on Bloom" made up into a cushion cover!
Five new Elefantz designs in Issue 6, and all for just a $4 per month subscription!

  3. Hi Jenny, glad everyone is feeling well again. Last night on our TV I watched a great program about Victoria, Australia. What a lovely country. Are you anywhere near there? It is so nice that you and Blossom are such good friends. I have 2 daughters and we are very close too.

  4. Have a wonderful day with your kids!

  7. Beautiful park Jen ... wish I could do a few laps with you. Nice to see a pic of the three of you together. Love that birdy cushion. I feel a new project coming on ....
    Hugs, Fee x

  8. Hi Jenny, wasn't a good movie, did you notised that one of the actors was danish, Mads Mikkelsen, the guy with the pad for the eye, I went with my daughter on 18 to see it, so I think it is a mother/children thing to see something like that movie. Looking foreward to receive your next issue.
    Best regards Susanne in Denmark

  9. So glad to hear the kids are looking out for you and not letting you get lonely! You do have great kids!
    I'm looking forward to all these lovely patterns you have designed. When I saw the circle of life block, I caught my breath, I love the red bird! Have a great visit with Mr E and enjoy your mc adventures!


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...
