Free pattern - Gifts of Grace Block 5

Saturday, June 12, 2010
Another month has whizzed around and it's time to let you have the next block in the Free block of the month pattern, Gifts of Grace.

Block 5 is "Kindness", a sense of compassion in the heart.


I hope you like this new block.  You can find the download here on my website.  Scroll down to the bottom of that page to find all the blocks that have been released so far.

I hear that some of you are finding it difficult each month to remember to go looking for the new block.  Well, I'd love it if you would become one of my blog "followers". That way, you will be reminded that the pattern is available - and you get to read all my ravings in between! 

Our bleak and cold weather means a lot of snuggling up under my quilt and lots of stitching accomplished.  I am a real hermit in winter and feel as if I only survive because I can do lots of hand embroidery!  This is some of last week's stitching:





I have had so much enjoyment working this embroidery - silk, damask, felt, variegated threads, beads, flowers - what more could I ask for!

Happy stitching!
