Blocks 17 and 18 in my free BOM!

In yesterday's blog post I said I'd be sharing some 'cool' photos today of last Sunday's adventure with Mr E - but I totally forgot that today is the 19th and that's the date you're all patiently anticipating each month for the release of new free blocks in my Shabby Roses Home BOM!

So, forgive me, but we'll delay the 'cool' pics until tomorrow, and today you can have your next two double blocks to download instead.
This month I've given you four little houses to stitch...

These teeny tiny shabby homes are the cutest things, aren't they?!

They stitch up pretty fast, and if you're not making the 'Shabby Roses Home' quilt, you could use them on any number of personal projects you have in mind...

This double set of blocks are free to download until April 18th HERE in my shop.

On the 19th of next month I'm sharing the very last block of Shabby Roses Home and we can finally assemble all 19 blocks and finish the quilt.
My plan is to have my quilt completed and photographed for you by then...and my sewing group girls have been told to make sure I do, so if you hear whips cracking in the background of the Elefantz blog there is a reason.

To see all 18 blocks so far, head over HERE to the Shabby Roses Home page, and remember it's not too late to start.
All the blocks will stay in my shop until June 30th, when they will disappear, so collect them now and join the fun.

Do you like polka dots?

If you're a long time reader of Elefantz you'll know that I adore them, especially red and white ones.
The other day I was at K-Mart looking for a few stationary supplies and my heart skipped a beat when I saw what they had in stock!

They perfectly matched the red and white polka dot linen napkins that Fee gave me in Melbourne, so naturally I add one as my photo background. 
I spent the sum total of just $10 for all these goodies, with a folder as well...

I think I'm inspired.
Watch out for new designs...

The first ever photo of Fee and me. After five years we met at last on March 6th. xx

Next week I'm going to show you something really special from this lady..

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...
