We still have no actual home internet due to a big Telstra bungle but hubby showed me how to hotspot my phone to my laptop so I could at least give you the new Alphabet Pincushion - and it's only a day late.
Yes, I know most of you will say "Jenny, you needn't do that, we could wait." and that's because you're all wonderfully kind and caring - ((thank you)) - but I don't like 'collecting' projects and then having to share a few all at once (it's only a few days until the next of this year's BOM blocks is shared) so let's just rejoice that now you can download "I" and stitch it over the weekend after all.
For this pinnie I've used a simple two colour fabric palette of grey and red, and then followed through with the embroidery in grey and red as well.
In the ditch between the border print and the embroidery block I've sewn a line of red backstitch to give a clear definition between the two seas of predominantly grey fabrics. Must admit I made that decision with the help of two lovely Tuesday sewing group friends.
(thank you Lynelle and Karyn!)
Scroll through my blog posts for the links to F, G and H which will be free until November 2nd only.
The pattern set for A-E is here in my shop as a $2 purchase.
Mr E is out front working on our sound barrier garden wall this weekend and I've got loads of sewing to do so hopefully I'll be ahead by three pincushions come Monday, but at the moment I'm still adding finishing touches to J.
Sneak peek at the back, which is very different to the front...
My middle daughter Anita and her own precious daughter, 4yo Aminah, will be arriving the week after next so my plan is to quickly get ahead with pincushions and the end of year Stitchery Club designs so I can enjoy her visit with no other commitments.
Anita will be staying with Blossom while she's here and we're all very excited because it's been two years since we were together so I'm sure you can imagine how much we girls have to catch up on.
Now, if you haven't checked out the November Club patterns yet, here they are...
The November patterns will be emailed out to all members on the 17th so if you're not yet a member you still have time to join if you'd like to!
Before I go here's one of my older tutorials you may like to work on for a Christmas gift.
I have collected doilies for years and when Blossom left home I inherited all her beautiful beads from a hobby she lost interest in...so I began to make beaded doily jug covers.
They are simple, useful and quite lovely...
God bless you always and may your heart lighten each day as you seek His presence for He is the giver of true peace and the lover of your very precious soul.
