I've been busy the last couple of days getting my October Newsletter ready to send out on Saturday. I don't know about you, but it seems to me that the year seems to pick up speed in the run to Christmas and it feels like only yesterday that I was previewing the September Newsletter.
In the October Newsletter, the Inspiration Column is about loving God and loving people which is what Jesus said were the most important commandments. He said it a bit differently in Matthew 36-40 but the meaning is the same: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind"..and "Love your neighbour as yourself." He then told the parable of the Good Samaritan showing that our neighbour is anyone in need of our mercy.
My Shepherd BOM is coming to an end, and in the Newsletter is the last of the stitcheries. (Next month we will start the exciting part of putting it all together.)
If the stitchery looks familiar to you, it's because, after making a few adjustments, I stitched the same block in the centre of the new Gift of Giving project, the Garden Centre.
This month are the instructions for the stitcheries and next month will be the instructions to make it up.
In The Quilting Bee, I show the quilt I've been secretly working on for an upcoming birthday using the lovely All in A Day fabric by Anni Downs which I also used for the Time for Tea placement.
I loved the motifs and hopefully the recipient of the quilt will enjoy them as well.
In All Things Woolly, my Weekend Blanket gets a viewing as well as baby knitting and socks!
This month I had so many other things to share that I've added a new section called This and That which includes fabric, house blocks, teddies and how I'm using my Zip-it Pouch from the February Newsletter.
There's the usual Last Word, a preview of a Christmas project which will be in the November Newsletter, and a sneak peak at the BOM for 2017.
And the cup? You will read about it in the Newsletter.
As usual, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Until next time
