I showed you the other day the beginning of my version of a design by my friend Fee.
Fee's "Blessings Sampler" was featured in an issue of Creating Country Threads early last year (Volume 12.3), and it caught my eye immediately as a project to make myself.
I have been resting the last few days (I am listening to my doctor and Mr E) and was able to complete my version! When I showed Fee she was so excited about my use of shabby pink and blue colours....
I did some simple hand quilting around the borders, and added more pretty mother-of-pearl buttons from my never-diminished stash for the flower centres...
I am hanging this down the side of our feature bookcase, in view of my stitching chair, so I can always remember to thank God for Fee's friendship.
Only two days left before I share the 2nd block in my "Promises & Borders" BOM. Here's a tiny sneak peek...
I'm also playing with a new design for the next issue of my magazine. Each issue will have a theme from now on and Issue 9's will be based in the kitchen. I'll be filling the magazine with projects for your own kitchen or to use as housewarming gifts, or perhaps a kitchen tea wedding shower!
Hope you love them as much I do. Every time we move house (19 times in 20 years now!), the first room I want to make homely is the kitchen.
What about you? Which room do you choose first to make homely when you move?
Blossom and I are stitching this afternoon. She has drawn up a new design of her own...it's so cute!
Have a blessed day,
