The "Jenny Rose" Gypsy Wagon

My latest pattern - and I'll give you three guesses who it's named for.

The Jenny Rose Gypsy Wagon

Not a princess castle, or a gingerbread house, sorry....but it was SO FUN to create!!!

Don't you just want to put on some frilly clothes, bangles on your arm, kick off your shoes and find some daisies for your hair?  I do.

This is my new favorite design.  I got the idea about a year ago, and it only took me this long to get it in stitches.

Simple backstitch, and single-wrap French knots.  That's it.

In my craftsy shop now!

So - now what!  Just finishing this sweet little wagon makes me want to get the pencils out again!

Are you longing for the open road as much as I am?  Not to mention SUMMER?!  I think the only way I'll get through the dark dreary days of winter is to surround myself with gypsy wagons and flowers.....and woolies, can't forget the woolies!!!

lovely pattern Allie, I can see this hanging in a caravan, trailer home, or somewhere else, or the lady traveller stitching away as they camped up for a few days in a quiet, peaceful site by a stream. There, that was the lovely ideas that came from your stitching. Jean.

I'm blushing from head to toe, and planning to run barefoot across the grass in my gypsy skirt, silver dangled earrings and embroidered peasant blouse!

You BLESS me, so very much, my darling friend.

And you are SO talented!! xxxxxxxxxx

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi Sweet Allie!!! I've been out of touch so very long the I'm hanging my head in shame. Though I haven't been doing much sewing, nor stitching, either one as I had a very rough winter and summer didn't bring much improvement. I spent many days in bed and I know you feel about the same way I do about that. It drives me crazy to lay around so, yet when I would try to get up and accomplish something, my body just would not tolerate it, nor could I handle the pain...so I gave in and listened to oodles of audio books and my dear hubby put a nice tv in my room and we got a Roku so that I could 'stream' just the tv shows of my choosing and that did help some. But as I said, you know from your own experience what it is like to be forced by health issues to lay around like that. Ah well, nuff said on that issue. And please dear friend don't think I'm complaining...I firmly believe we are in God's loving hands and as long as I know He is watching over me I will bear anything He allows into my life and make the best of things that I can. Of course, in His wisdom He kept quilting and stitching on my mind and knowing I would eventually get back to it, and with the help of my wonderful hubby I downloaded Jenny's Lord's Prayer and Daisy Days, etc. Also a couple of your designs that you shared so generously with us and they are all safely saved, just waiting for me to print them out and get busy on them. The time will come that I will get back to it and I can't wait.
Anyway, I have gotten carried away about myself, a bad habit of mine as you full well know and I do apologize, because I really just wanted to say hello, and tell you how very, very gorgeous your beautifully named Jenny Rose Gypsy Wagon is. I love, it! When I think how I will do mine, I close my eyes and see some bundles of fringes hanging from each corner and I can just see it swaying as the wagon travels down the road on it's never ending journeys. Well, I'd best go for now. Please know that I have kept you in my thoughts and prayers every single day as I do so many of my beloved internet friends. Hoping all is well with you and yours and I will be ordering a copy of this lovely pattern very soon now as the doctors finally got my stomach squared away, Praise be to God ! I'm sending some very big Hugzzzz your way and hoping you manage to stay safe and warm in this bitter cold that is supposed to grip much of our nation very soon. I know your busy, but if you have a spare moment, I would love to hear from you. Much love and big hugzz dear Allie....Keep those designs coming. You may have hit on a theme here that could work into a stitchery BOM, don't you think? OH, that would be so much fun. :o)
