Free Pattern - Gifts of Grace Block 4

Saturday, May 15, 2010
It's time to give you the next block in the Gifts of Grace free Block of the Month pattern.  This month we are focussing on patience - a willingness to stick with things ... and people!  I hope you enjoy stitching this block.  You can download it from my website here.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Download Block 4" line.

Don't you think this little bird is waiting patiently on her nest?

I've been revisiting one of my older patterns with new fabric and I am really pleased with how it has turned out.  Here are some sneak peaks:

Some Suffolk puffs and Prairie Points:

Plenty of embroidery (even if you can't see much of it!)

And of course, lots of applique:

Now, there's just the label and samples to do, and lots of reworking of the instructions and templates.  I already have my next design scribbled out on paper, so I'm itching to start.  BUT I need to have some patience, and be disciplined enough to finish this project COMPLETELY before I start something new!  It's so easy to be a starter and not a finisher, isn't it!

Happy stitching!
