Show & Tell and the extras I've been working on....

I'm head down and bottom up today fine tuning the patterns in Friday's issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine, plus stitching and photographing the blanket-stitch-3-ways tutorial project. Isn't it cute?

 I've also made some notepapers for this issue, using the 'Pot Me Pretty' project for decoration. The notepapers come in two sizes - a full page, and a double page. I'm printing more for myself right now...
To see all the projects and extras inside this next issue just visit the magazine page HERE, and don't worry there is still time to subscribe! In fact, subscribe by August 1st and receive a free Elefantz pattern!
Would you like to see some show & tell photos?
I really get excited when you send me photos of Elefantz designs you have stitched, and I think all my readers enjoy them too!
ANNA is stitching both Shabby Roses 'Beauty', and 'Daisy Days'. She has little ones at home so I'm really blown away by her commitment to stitch these blocks - and I *love* her fabric choices!

ANNEKE has finished stitching my original "Shabby Roses" quilt. LOVELY!!!

KIM has finished the first two Shabby Roses "Beauty" blocks, *and* she's stitched my "Lord Bless You" design. Kim, wow....

Girls, you are amazing, and I really truly appreciate you sending me these photos. You inspire me to keep creating for you.

Do you have photos of any Elefantz designs you have made? Please email them to me so I can share them here on the blog. 
I'd best get back to the magazine otherwise I'll miss my deadline! 
Have a sweet and sunshiny day everyone...
PS: All the Show & Tell patterns are HERE in my shop - one is even free!

  3. I really loved the red pattern...until I saw Kim's (?) blue checked version! I've been meaning to ask you how to do the puffy satin stitch. I've searched and searches but haven't found any directions yet. My satin stitching is terrible! I'm still on Block 3 of Promises & Borders LOL Could you maybe post a tutorial on the web page with the instructions? Pretty please??!! Thanks.

  4. Son maravillosos tus diseƱos y tus bordados.....que guapos los dos....hacen una bonita pareja.

  5. Oh my that bee is the cutest!! I turned the "stitch" practice piece into a needle book and the "pins" into a pincushion,,,will have to find something special for this cute little bee!! Looking forward to the next issue and thank you Grandma Shell for liking my Blue "Beauty" blocks.:)

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...
