Free Pattern - Gifts of Grace Block 9

Sunday, October 17, 2010
It's time to give you the last Gifts of Grace block - Block 9.  It's a bit sad to think we've come to the end of the series.  I have really enjoyed designing and sharing this project with you.  Our last block is Self control - able to marshall and direct our energies wisely.

Here is what the block looks like:

I do hope you like it.  As usual, it can be downloaded from my website hereI will leave all the blocks available for a couple more months, so tell your friends if they want to download them for free, they will need to do so soon.

Of course, I will love to see photos of what you do with the blocks.  I will show you how I finished mine off in a couple of weeks when my computer is up and running again.  I plan to have one or two free patterns for you in November and December before we start another BOM in 2011.  Well, the ideas are in my head at the moment and I'm hopeful they will become a reality! 


Now for our big news - we are officially homeless!

At the moment, we are of no fixed abode!!!!!  Sale of our house went through on Friday last week, and for two days we have had nowhere we could call home!  Tomorrow, Monday, we take possession of our new home, which will be very exciting, as you can imagine.

On Thursday last week, the removalists came and packed all our earthly goods into two containers.  They did a fantastic job, very professionally and very happily.  We could not believe how neatly they packed the containers and how smooth they made the whole process.

And here are all our things being driven off to be put on the train to travel the 2000+ kilometres to our new home.

Meanwhile, we too are heading north to lovely Queensland, a journey which is taking us three days by car.  We're almost there as I write this - only a few hundred kilometres to go!  If all goes to plan, our goods will be delivered Tuesday morning and we hope to sleep in our new home Tuesday night.  Then comes all the excitement of unpacking and finding new places to put all our gear!

Thank you to so many of you who wrote such lovely comments and e-mails, wishing us well and praying for us in our big move.  I know you understand that I haven't been able to thank you all individually, but be assured I have really appreciated your care and support at this time.
