Lap Quilt needs a home :)

if you have been reading
my StitcheryJen blog,
you will know
that I need to find homes
for some of the many "samples"
that I have left over
from my shop days.
Have a look over here
'cos it explains it all :)
....this is a sweet little lap quilt
I made quite a few years ago,
when I was in Geraldine,
from a range of Yenter fabrics.
I remember it was about the time
that blended quilts
seemed to be very popular
and I made the quilt
using a piece of each fabric
that was in the range.
The quilt measures 53'' square
and if memory serves me well,
the batting is woollen.
Really soft pretty colours.
It's never been used,
other than for display.
Email if you are interested:)
See you,
Jenny :)

Merry Christmas:)

I wish you a merry merry Christmas :)
It's been a bit nutty around here lately,
but I will be back,
next year,
with more goodies I'm sure.
Hope you all have a perfectly wonderful Christmas Day.
Thank you so much for stopping by here
over the past months.
It's been such fun:)
See you soon.

Christmas Goodies

I need to do a little Christmas stitching.
It's not too late, is it??
I'm thinking it might be,
but if I don't finish it this Christmas,
there's always another one:)
Was thinking you might like some Christmas goodies as well.
I had so much fun putting this bundle together.
There's  a couple of bits of fabric
 and a beautiful little piece
of spotted linen,
a chunk of red French General cotton sack cloth
(it's a bit hidden under the other stuff),
 lots of ribbons,
Christmas stitchery cards
and a quilt pattern.
There's a wee red felt pocket
and some pearl cotton.
Cute little gift cards,
and a gorgeous fabulous
Theodora Cleave "angel" decoration!

I love Christmas
and all the bits and pieces that go with it:)
Love to give these away:)
So, if you like,
leave a wee comment
and who knows,
they could be yours:)

See you,
Jenny :)

We drew the winner this morning...
Rebecca K!!
There is a little parcel of goodies
on its way
to you.
Enjoy :)
Thanks to everyone that stopped by
and left a comment...
maybe I should do another one soon :)
These are some of the gorgeous trims
that I unpacked
at the shop
this week.
There's pretty much
every colour under the sun...
...this is probably my favourite lot...
...but then again...

...there is something to be said for pink :)
A girl can never have too many trims!
See you

Soft and Sweet

Inspired by the lovely late spring colours
in my garden,
I poked my nose into my sewing room today,
for the first time in weeks.
Was looking for a new stitchy project
in those sweet soft flowery colours.
While I was looking for the bits and pieces
I needed,
I found some extra bits and pieces.
They looked so lovely together,
I thought you might like them too:)
There's a fabulous Woodcutters Daughter screenprint,
gorgeous Cottage Garden threads,
(I know how much you all like these:)
a little linen and lace bag,
and lavender heart
(made by moi),
white French linen,
cute spotty buttons,
and and little spool of delicious pink ribbon.
And besides,
it's been far far too long
since we've had a giveaway :)
if you like the look of this little bundle of treasures,
leave a wee comment here,
or over on my Facebook page,
or leave one on both
and double your chances:)
I'm off to start my stitching:)
See you
