Block Three....

Early Saturday evening here, peaceful and quiet - no deer, our new neighbors next door have moved in and have been exploring their forest.

I hadn't planned on posting tonight, but I need to do something to keep me awake while my son's jeans are washing.  He needs to wear them to work tonight, and I plumb forgot to get them going.

I finished block three of Sweet Country, the Faith block.  


The whole time I was drawing this block, I was thinking of this saying....

"When we walk to the edge
of all the light we have
and take that step
into darkness of the unknown, 
we must believe that one
of two things will happen:

there will be something solid
for us to stand on, 
or God will teach us how to fly."
Patrick Overton

Isn't that so lovely?  


I'm so pleased with the little spider web, lol....


And all three together.  One left to go!  Turns out, it's my favorite.  I'll start stitching it tomorrow. 

 I've updated the first two pattern files, we now have all designs in two sizes - 8" x 5", and 10" x 6.5".  I'm stitching the small size.  So if you've already purchased the first two patterns, you should receive an automatic update notice from craftsy, just re-download the file.  If you haven't received an update notice, just go back to your pattern files and download again.   The link to the shop is here:  Allie-oops Designs

I managed to get around to visit you all this week, I'm so happy about that!  This coming week will be a busy one, Mum goes to the pacemaker clinic for a check-up on Monday, then to the eye doctor for laser surgery on Thursday, in addition to all the normal errands we do for her.  Tomorrow I'll be staying in my pajamas and taking it easy - I had a flare last night, and managed to get a rib out of place, thankfully it's back in place but these flares take a lot out of me.  And dang it, new neighbors means keeping the blinds closed in my sewing room if I stay in my jammies all day.....*giggle*.  Don't want to scare them off just yet, we'll have to see if they're keepers or not.

Take care my friends....
Love,
Allie

I do love that verse! Boy oh boy, its really profound. Stay in those jammies, you deserve a day off. I love that little web, too. Such a pretty set of blocks.

Lovely blocks! Hope your sunday will be peaceful and blessed.

Love these designs! And the poem is one I want to add to my journal remember-this page. OK? I'm glad you are beyond the construction dust phase with the new home next door. Sounds like you could use a strategically placed shrub or two for screening between they and your sewing room view. ;-)

I'm sure the neighbors would be fine with you wearing jammies in your house. My neighbors walked around their house naked - I finally covered up my kitchen window so I wouldn't have to see. It is a beautiful block. Great fence, spiderweb, butterfly, bird, all of it.

These are treasure designs, Allie. Love each and every one, and am looking forward to your fourth one. I used to do a lot of embroidery and cross-stitch and am starting to get back to it again. Love these!

Michelle said...

I love these blocks. I can't wait to see the last one in the set. These would look great in my country home.

Little Penpen said...
