Free pattern - Consider the Lilies Pattern 10

Saturday, October 15, 2011
It's free pattern time again - second last one in the Consider the Lilies quilt. There's a cute little cottage with lilies in the garden. 

The concept of "at home" is how we can feel as we rest in God's love and it reminds me of His wonderful provision of all our needs.

 You can download the pattern from here.

Next month you'll see the finished product! It makes my heart smile every time I look at the quilt, so I hope you're enjoying making it too.

We've had a busy week with some lovely friends staying for a couple of days; then it was time to catch up on all the mail and e-mails that were happening while we were on holidays.  I've nearly cleared the deck and have even completed a few more items for a stall at the Creative Craft Retreat where I'll be teaching in a couple of weeks. 

Some little bee-hive pincushions

and some mug rugs.

Then I've added another pattern to the website, "Making Daisy Chains".

It's a fat-quarter friendly bag, using three fat quarters plus a bit of fabric for the appliques.  The wording says "Happiness is ... making daisy chains" - makes me think of my childhood trying to make chains out of clover!

You can find the details here.

Yesterday we went to see the opera, La Boheme.  It wasn't live, but the next best thing, recorded live at the Sydney Opera House and shown on the big screen with subtitles.  It was fantastic and it was great to see some younger singers take the lead roles.  The two main singers were absolutely amazing with the most beautiful voices.  The songs are still going around in my head!

Happy stitching!
