Winners, and Show & Tell...

Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway for a preview copy of The Shabby Roses Stitchery!
I have read through the hundreds of entries, and was so touched by the lovely sentiments shared about the love of stitchery.
I wish I could have chosen all of you as winners, but in the end I chose three I felt most had a connection with my heart, my love for my husband, and my faith.

"Fantastic on your 2000 followers Jenny. I love doing embroidery as its as pretty as you want to make it. It is easily taken where ever you go. It is very relaxing to do as my hubby watches his shows on TV. Not my cuppa tea but we are sitting together and that is very important. It has many uses when it is finished. Thankyou for the opportunity to have a say."

"Stitching time is my prayer time. I love to pick up a project I am doing for someone and pray blessings on them and their family and any needs I know they have.
Jenny friend, I love your blog and I am so thankful for all your followers!"

"Congrats, Jenny! What a wonderful feeling having 2000 folks following your lovely blog. It's because it's so lovely that you have so many followers and I know it will grow. Besides the wonderful patterns that you so freely share with us all, people come here because of your honesty. For me, these could be things, I would like to sometimes brush under the carpet!! Thank you for making me look at things differently!.....
I just love stitching. It really relaxes me and as my mind focuses of the pattern and colours of threads, my everyday stresses just seem to float out of the window.... a very closed window, mind you, coz I tend to stitch, late night, in my PJ's in front of the tele!!
Thank you for the chance of winning your fab pattern.
Hugs, Sue from Cyprus x x x

Congratulations ladies! I will email you for your addresses and post the preview patterns out next week.xx

My free BOM "Promises & Borders" finished in October, and how lovely it's been to have some of you send me photos of your work on it!
Kathy Wollin used some of the blocks in a quilt for a dear friend undergoing chemo. How very special. xx

Jessica has finished the whole quilt! See more photos on her blog. It's so lovely!

Another completed quilt finish is by Shirlwin!  Isn't it pretty?!

 Jeanne Henry made my 'Autumn Falling' free design...
...and liked it so much she made another and added her own touch! Love it, Jeanne. 

 Betty used a design of mine for a wedding gift, and it is very pretty!

Thank you ladies for sending me your photos. You've done exactly what I hope for when I design a pattern - you made it your own.

Dearest Jenny, I really don't know what to say... I have had your blog open for over an hour.... in disbelief.... had I really won your wonderful pattern? I guess it's true because my name's on your blog, right?!! Thank you so much Jenny, this is such a honour because to me, you are my favourite designer, and winning a pattern from my favourite designer is certainly a honour!! I already have itchy fingers and can't wait to start this project. Once again Jenny, THANK YOU so much!!
Hugs, Sue from Cyprus x x x
