Are they jelly beans??!!

My sweet friend Fee sent me a parcel the other day, and inside was a surprise for me!
Ooooo, are they gourmet jelly beans??!!
My tastebuds were dancing! But then I took a closer look and removed the lid...
Ha ha!! Not jelly beans - better!! 
Twenty cotton reels in goregous colours! 
What a fantastic gift - thanks so much, Fee. 
You know, when I showed Blossom she thought the same as me...jelly beans. ;-)
I finished the fourth design for the magazine this morning. Yep, I am running close to the wire with this issue!
~Shabby Roses Candle-Mat~
I used more 80 year old lace...
Maybe an early Christmas project? :-)
The fifth "Promises & Borders" block is on my knee for stitching tonight. Loving the mother bird guarding her eggs, and another favourite Bible promise...
What is your favourite Bible verse or promise?


  1. lol,love the tine Jenny,i thought the same,that they were jelly beans.Wow i love that candle mat its very femine,so pretty.xx

  2. Wow you have a wonderful friend!

    I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

  3. oh wow how cool is that...Jen your candle mat is gorgeous,cheers Vickie

  4. one of my favorites is: psalm 121, especially verse 5, the text the pastor has used in church when we got married. (hope i used the right words in English, in Dutch is so much easier.) bye

  5. Those are the best jelly beans I have ever seen!! Love your candle mat design.

  6. I love the promise Jer. 29:11 because we got that text of the Lord when our Son died, and it is on his grave too. This verse keeps me holding my head right up. because it are sure words of Hope and peace

  7. Eph 2:5 By Grace ye are saved!!

    I love the verses. Thank you

  8. I have to agree with Michelle Chitty! Philippians 4:23 This is just one of many!

  9. I'm with Michele Chitty. Phil 4:13. I can do all things through God who strengheth me. It helped me through many rough patches in my life. Love all your and Blossom's patterns. I try not to miss any and have made more than a dozen in the last couple of years. Keep up the good work. It blesses many people you will never even know.

  10. Thread is healthier than jelly beans.

  11. Gorgeous threads!!! What a wonderful surprise for you Jenny. The candelmat is so lovely and the lace is just beautiful and with the elegant candle holder glowing in the picture the project becomes completely exquisite. You have such a talent my friend, it is a true gift, we are so blessed you share it with all of us. Thank you! Hugs...

  12. Psalm 92:12 - The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon, planted in the house of the Lord.

    You're sure making pretty things.

  13. Well those are the best jelly beans I ever saw, lol...what a gorgeous gift!!! Love the candlemat design, Jenny!

  14. What a great gift. I'm really looking forward to the next issue of Elefantz Home.


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...
