Hello Peeps,

Welcome to the first post of Alphabet August.

A is for Alphabet August.

E is for Everyone is Special!

N is for Baa is the Nicest Sheep in the Universe.

This are the first letters for an alphabet quilt Miss H is making from a jelly roll in the fabric line "Miss Kate."

Let's Do Things In Threes!

Hello Peeps,

Miss H is sick with not one but THREE infections. So the Mother is going to come down tomorrow and look after her.

So, Miss H is keeping her liquids up and blowing her nose often. She is also very thankful for her amazing friend who's house she was at when she took a turn for the worse. They are filling her with chicken soup and love.

I am soooo excited that the Mother is coming because I was recently sent an envelope and the Mother will be bringing it down with her. I can't wait!

Jenny July: Packing it all in!

Hello Peeps and Paw-Pals,

Today is the last day of Jenny July, but we still have sooooo much to show you. So we have attempted to pack it all in (though there are still others we couldn't fit in).

Snowy will tell you about the first three:

The Mother can't remember if we showed you this when she stitched it up last year  It was the start of her taking beautiful linens she found in the op shop and adding Jenny's stitcheries to them.

The Mother loved stitching this last year.  I am not sure she is more domesticated - she still prefers stitching, quilting and walking me to housework!  But she is getting better!

Just recently she stitched this one in the centre of another treasure - ' Contentment comes from Gratitude' one of Jenny's beautiful Gentle Domesticity BOM.

Love the way Jenny combines applique with stitchery.  It makes her designs so pretty.

And another - guess you can see how I 'love' these designs

Here is the last one that I (Baa) will show you:

Miss H stitched this cute little birdie on another doily found in the op shop.

I lurve how in Jenny's design it has running stitches - it makes it look so coolio!

Lazy daisy stitches make the bestest stitched flowers and French knots are perfect for button holes.
(Shhhh... I am about to tell you a secret: Miss H loathes stitching French knots.)

Love and Slobbery Kisses From
Baa. xxx and Snowy!

Jenny July: Snail Mail

Hello Peeps,

The Mother has been hard at work sewing up this stitchery by Elefantz that Miss H did awhile ago.

Here is another progress photo....

...and the stitchery in the centre.
It is one of Miss H's absolute favourites!

Miss H lurves snail mail so very much!

And the Mother found lovely, lovely fabric to go around it.

Jenny July: Journal

Hello Peeps,

Miss H did a beautiful stitchery by Jenny of Elefantz (find it HERE for free), which the Mother then made into a journal for Miss H's friend - Flower's 19th birthday.

These are the pieces for the front and the back.

And here is the notebook before it is covered.

Isn't it lovely? The Mother was so happy to find fabric that matched perfectly even though Miss H never colour matched the stitchery to any material before she started.

Here is a close-up.

Hasn't it made a lovely journal cover? Oh, you can't see it? Ooops!

Here you go!

Slobbery Kisses,

Jenny July: Jeremiah 29:11

Hello Paw-Pals,

The Mother found some yummy fabrics in one of her drawers - they are Tapestry by Joanna Figueroa, and Papillon by 3Sisters.    I think they have been hidden there for a while.

She got them out to start making one of Jenny's older designs into a quilt.

She started with a border around the stitchery...

it matched the gold thread colour perfectly!

Always love Jenny's birds!

Then she added more borders and then squares before a final big red border.

It's still a flimsy at the moment.  The Mother says it has to wait its turn in the quilting pile.

Slobbery Kisses,
