Have you enjoyed the last month of Wonky Houses blocks each Friday?
Today I'm sharing the 4th (and final) block a whole day early because it's the 4th of July and I want to bless and celebrate with my friends across the Pond in the USA.
Happy 4th of July ! \o/
(hey, that's clever of me - the 4th on the 4th...)
Block 4 was my favourite when I drew them up 'cause I have a bit of a crush on tree houses, plus that cute little bunny at the door is so darn cute!
The pattern for block 4 includes the full instructions for finishing all 4 blocks into a wall hanging...
You can download the final pattern HERE in my Craftsy Shop.
It's a really happy project, so I hope it brings a smile to your face!
Today I have been very busy finishing up two designs for Handmade Magazine's 'Country Christmas' issue.
If you've been following me for a while you'll know that I don't 'do country' very much at all. The closest I get to it is redwork - but, I do enjoy a challenge.
This issue comes out in Australia at the beginning of October, but I will probably share them later in the year for my overseas readers who cannot access that magazine.
This is "Bless Each Heart"; a stitchery that was simply bordered and framed in a hoop. Hoops are wonderful for framing things!
And this is "A Bagful of Joy", which is great for slipping over your shoulder when you're out and about Christmas shopping. The angled front is actually a pocket.
As I was finishing my photo shoot, a little visitor hopped on the bag...
In a future issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine I'll be making a similar bag design, but with more stitchery involved - plus pretty shabby chic colours. I think it will be even sweeter in pink!
Thank you for all the love you showed me after yesterday's blog post. I felt hugged beyond breathing!
You're amazing girls, and I thank God for each and every one of you.
