Show & Tell...

It's been a while since I did a show and tell post, but I'm taking a break from writing the e-zine this morning to share with you these photos of Elefantz projects made by some lovely blog readers.
Grab a cuppa because you may want to follow the links to the blogs of those who have them!

Some of the photo are very blurry, but I don't want to omit them because these ladies have kindly taken time to email me  photos to share - just remember that iphones and ipads (especially ipads) do not take the best photographs and its often a good idea to take a few photos of the same thing and choose the clearest to send or use.

Tammy Lyons was the winner of my 5 year Blogversary giveaway in September, and she is also making my free BOM, Shabby Roses Home. I love this photo of her work space with the first block...

Carol Mina has been very busy stitching some of my new and older designs!


Esperanza has been  brightly stitching Shabby Roses Home blocks too!

Gunn in Norway is stitching my Daisy Days BOM, and recently sent me this little photo of her sweet version of Wednesdaisy and Thursdaisy, as well as the Little House in California runner from a recent Elefantz Home Ezine!

The very productive Fiona over at Bubz Rugz made my Shabby Roses 'Bouquet' quilt. I shared this first in 2010, and then over one week during my 5 year blogversary last month. Fiona made this when I first shared it three years it!

Margaret Vernon beautifully stitched "Lord Bless You" for her father who is terminally ill...

Joy couldn't resist stitching my 'joy' applique from a recent issue of Handmade magazine onto a bag she'd made, and also framed my little redwork 'Partridge & Pear' stitchery in a frame she found at the op shop and her husband had painted for her. Aren't they an industrious couple!?

Pia celebrated Autumn by stitching an older wall hanging pattern of mine that featured machine raw edged applique, "Autumn Falling". I love her machine quilting around the tree!

Lida is another prolific stitcher, and she's made quite a few of my patterns...

Thank you to all these lovely ladies for sharing their work with us!
If you have photos of any Elefantz designs you have made just email me HERE and I'll share them in a monthly Show & Tell blog post.

Back to writing the ezine...

PS: some of the patterns above are still available HERE in my shop.

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...
