Show & Tell!

It's been a while since the last Show & Tell post, but this one is worth the wait.
Sit back and enjoy what a few lovely Elefantz readers have been making from my designs or my ideas...

Thoeria is from South Africa, and regularly comments and encourages me. She's new to using a sewing machine, but is very proficient in cross stitch so drop over to her blog HERE for some sweet eye candy.
I love how she took two of my free designs and made them her own...

Dear Meg in Canberra blessed a teenage cancer patient by stitching "The Sparrow" to share God's love with her young patient...

Virginia in Chile followed my "Buttons 'n' Bows" pattern to make her version of this honey of a bag!

Denise in sunny Saudi Arabia (I love how Denise always signs off her emails with that description!)  has been very busy stitching beautiful versions of both the "Tweet" needle cupboard and a block from the Rosedaisy Alphabet pattern!
(both patterns are here in my shop)


My friend Robin in the US (we've been email buddies for well over a decade now and have never met face to face, but what a blessing it is for me to know her) stitched one of my framed stitcheries from 2012 into the prettiest purple pillow for her daughter, Amanda...

 Using a block from a BOM to create something individual is a really clever idea, and Lynn has done just that! She stitched one of my Daisy Days Quilt blocks, changed the wording from Tuesdaisy to 'summer' for a summer quilt exchange!

Patsy Cash has made a start on The Lord's Prayer Sttichalong quilt, and I have to say her choice of fabrics are scrumptious indeed!

Have you made any projects from my three 'binding scraps' tutorials shared this month?
They are here, here and here.
Wendy was quick off the mark turning an orphan stitchery into a mini-quilt to feature on this sweet cushion...

Are you inspired by these Show & Tell photos? I am!
Thank you to all these lovely ladies for sending me photos of what they have made from an Elefantz design or idea.

I guess there is only one thing for me to do now...keep creating new stitchy goodness to busy your fingers, right? 

Have a brilliant day,

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...
