Free Pattern - Consider the Lilies Pattern 2

Saturday, February 12, 2011
Have you finished making the first pattern of the Consider the Lilies free block of the month design yet? Can you believe it's already time to download the next pattern?

Pattern 2

... A little bit of stitching, a bit of piecing and you are 2/3rd the way to completing the first block of this four-block design!  It is now available on my website for download here

I do hope you enjoy stitching this little block ... and what is under the pink fabric will all be revealed next month!

I was able to get a bit of a 'go-on' this week and managed to get a quilt finished and two other small projects.  Tomorrow I'm off to the Post Office to post them to two magazine editors.

This one is a Christmas in July project.

Our Church is having a market/fete next month.  I only just found out about it, seeing we are only new at the church, so I don't have much time to get a few bits and pieces made to donate.  So, it was out with the PASSES box.  PASSES are my "projects at a stand-still".  Sure enough, there were a few stitcheries, projects half started, (or should that be 'half finished'?), and things that had been sitting around for a long time. It is an ideal opportunity to salve my conscience and get a few of them completed, so that's the plan for this week.

I had a look in my "completed" box and found a couple of things that should be suitable:

A little pincushion - click on the photo to see the sweet little daisies around the edge.

A face washer embroidered with roses.

I thought I would make some more cupcake pincushions as people seem to like them.  I cut out quite a few but have only completed one.  They take nearly 3 hours to make so are definitely not quick and easy!  This is the one I have finished:

I'd better go and get some more stitching done!

Happy stitching!
