I'm trying to remember when,
a long long time ago,
that I first saw Brenda Ryan's
I do remember that it was not that long after
I opened my shop in Geraldine,
and that it was in a magazine,
and I'm pretty sure
it was a picture of
Since then I have stitched many many
of Brenda's designs...
This is Daisy :)
One of my most favourite cushions :)
The centre panel from
"A Measured Stitch".
Gorgeous little decoration,
using Cottage Garden Threads :)
From Jane Austen's quilt.
Another from ''Jane's'' quilt :)
...and one cute little cottage
(just a little bit unfinished yet:)
These are just a few,
there are a gazillion more pics on my 'puter,
but you can see what I mean,
her work is beautiful:)
And what prompted all this is a promise to myself,
that I must finish a couple of unfinished projects.
I have all the stitcheries for
Jane Austen's quilt
sitting neatly in a box
and I have decided that I must finish the quilt
as it is far too exquisite to be tucked away
in lots of little pieces
inside a box!!
And I've also got to finish the little cottage series.
Made me think,
here it comes:)
I have a spare pattern (or two :)
and I thought
time for a pattern and thread giveaway.
I haven't stitched this pattern myself, yet,
but don't worry,
I do have my own copy tucked away:)
So here's the deal
