Free Pattern - Gifts of Grace Block 8

Sunday, September 19, 2010
Well, here we are with the second last block in our Gifts of Grace series.  It has been so encouraging to hear from lots of you lovely stitchers out there and to know that you like the blocks and are enjoying stitching them.

This month we are focussing on Gentleness, not needing to force our way in life.  This is what is looks like:

I couldn't let a whole series of blocks go without some grub roses, could I???!!! 
To help you with them, there's some helpful hints and photos in the tutorial on my website. 
And you can download the new block in the usual place on my website.

There's not much stitching happening in our household at the moment, but I have become expert at taping cartons!  Our boxes arrived on Monday and we packed 85 in the first four days, with some help from a friend, who took pity on us having to tackle packing my husband's three or four thousand books - yes, that's thousands, not hundreds!  I've finished packing all my precious fragile treasures and the house already looks bare - I think it has lost its soul.  Guess what room I am leaving till last to pack - just in case I have some spare time .....

I do have a couple of piccies for you though, as my project, the Herb Garden, has now been published in the lovely Australian Homespun magazine.

I was quite excited to have it gracing the front cover of such a prestigious magazine.

Here it is on the inside:

Until next time, happy stitching.
