It's been a fairly dry wet season.
My backyard is a swamp...and the worst of the rain is yet to come.
I take comfort in stitching...there's not much else to do!
The second of my three designs for the March 29th issue of Elefantz HOME is all finished. As I shared before, this will be the 'Little Things' Issue - all three designs are smaller than average.
The first design is the 12" square Mini Quilt I showed you last week...
The second design is a Mini Pillow, straight from the heart, and scented with dried lavender. It's just 8" x 13"!
Tomorrow I'll finish the third design - "HOME" says it all. I won't give you any more hints because I want you to see it as a surprise.
It's been a while since I've done a Show & Tell, so let me wow you with some of my designs that you clever ladies have made!
"Promises & Borders" is so popular, and I am incredibly humbled by the many, many emails of thanks and encouragement I receive each week. It blesses me to be able to bless you with these blocks.
From LISA MORTELL...(love these colours and the way the hearts 'pop!)
From LINDA COX...(love that she colours in with pencils!)
From TERESA RALEIGH...( gorgeous background fabric and colours!)
One of my favourite 2010 quilt designs has to be 'Miss Molly Moo' (see my blog post HERE)!
Look how Margaret Strickland made her own version of Miss Molly Moo, using just the blocks and her own quilt design!
And finally, Denise has stitched my Shabby Roses quilt!
Ladies, I am SO blessed to have you stitching my designs - that is such a compliment to a designer, and a real boost of encouragement. Thank you! Your work is gorgeous!
Before I go I wanted to show you this....
At our local supermarket this is what greets the mums and kids when they push their empty trolleys through the turnstile. In a world where kids are usually heading for the lolly (candy) aisle, our supermarket has a pink pig to entice them to choose a healthier treat.
The little ones get to put 50c in the Pink Piggy Bank and in return they choose any piece of fruit they like to eat while mum continues with the grocery shopping.
All the money raised goes to the Children's Hospital.
I may not be a child, but I enjoy popping my 50c in and grabbing an apple or a nectarine while I shop!
We should have this sort of thing in all supermarkets, don't you think?
Have a wonderful week!
