Block 9 Grow in Grace

I can't believe it, but here is our very last block in the Grow in Grace project!



Be forgiven - you know, looking back over my life, I find it so difficult sometimes to understand how God could forgive me, and yet He did, and He does.

I've also completed the finishing instructions.


A very simple quilt - cuz simple is what I do - you know me and piecing, lol.  But I am very pleased with the final result!  Now to get it quilted and bound.

As always, email me at allieoopsdesigns (at) gmail (dot) com if you're not on facebook, and I will email you the designs.

I took mum out yesterday, and she didn't get me in trouble once.  It was amazing.

I'm going to celebrate a big birthday in a couple of days - and a few days ago I got a very special surprise in the mail.


Our own darling Jenny sent me the most gorgeous needlebook ever in the history of needleboooks.


As you can see, it's already in use!  I was gobsmacked at her teeny tiny stitches....


That little birdie is smaller than a penny!  Jenny, thank you for this beautiful treasure, it will be by my side with every stitch I take, to remind me of my sister in Christ across the miles.  Jenny celebrated the same big birthday last month....otherwise I would swear we were separated at birth.

Well, I guess I should go work on a new project, it's very strange to not have something new to upload every week!  I'm not lacking for ideas, I think I'll try to translate some of them into cloth...

See you soon!
Love,
Allie

What a wonderful gift. You and Jenny have so much talent, I think you may indeed be twins :) I'm heading out on the road for awhile and am taking your patterns with me. Hope to get a few blocks done. If they turn out half decent, I'll send you a pix (teehee) Happy Birthday, Darlin'.

Another beautiful design - I think my favorite with those tiny pink blooms in a basket! Also love the beautiful needle book you received from Jenny - what a special gift. I always enjoy how she adds those little lace pieces and other embellishments in there. Looking forward to you Emailing this Block 9 to me also - thank you :)!

Your quilt is simply gorgeous and a true reflection of the love you have for our sweet Saviour.
Love you my dear friend and yes we could almost be sisters. Tell mum I love her and am still waiting for those adoption papers to be signed. ;-)

Wow, that sure is a beautiful needle book - what a wonderful gift. Happy birthday! Your quilt is absolutely lovely. That's a very pretty print you used to frame your blocks, and your stitchery designs are sweet.

Jenny's super tiny stitches are what raises her needlework above so many others I've seen. What a beautiful gift.

Happy Birthday!
