DBM #6 - A New Look!

 Linky Tool issues have been sorted out, and I have been very busy having fun with various editing Tools, Apps and programmes to create a spanking brand new badge for Design Board Monday.

But I didn't stop there...oh, no! I searched the wonderful world wide web and figured out how to create a Link Up Button Code...and here it is...just copy the code and paste into your blog in HTML mode or onto your side bar. The button will automatically link to Bits 'n Bobs and your job of linking my blog to your post is done.

Bits 'n Bobs

So????? What do you think.....Do you like the new design? I saw the other one on some blogs and it looked very boring and uninspiring!

I have been going nuts playing with all these new Editing Apps that I can get on my new computer.  Amazing how things have changed in the 8 years I was using the old one!

On the sewing front...everything is the same on my Design Board. The extra fabric for Baby G's quilt hasn't arrived yet but I have my fingers crossed for Monday...

Another block has arrived for A Country Tea Party....Yikes! I haven't even traced last months pattern yet...that is not going to plan at all!...

Flowerville is calling out to be finished I only have the little bird on the roof and a few little crosses to stitch....

Talking of little birds...have you seen Jenny Elefantz's Booby Bird....As you are aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Jenny has lovingly & kindly designed this little bird in recognition of all those affected by breast cancer...Thankfully, I don't have breast cancer and I am grateful for that but I remember once being called back for another mammogram and how nervous I was while still trying to show a brave face...I also know women who have had breast cancer and overcome it....and yes, at least 2 who lost the battle.  Head over to Jenny of ELEFANTZ  to find read her story about the Booby Bird and the link for the free Pattern

Now it's your turn to share:

What is on your Design Board, wall or table for this week? 

  • link anything that you are working on this week or over the past week....needle and thread is all it takes! 
  • Please add a link back to Bits 'n Bobs as part of your post (get the button code)
  • Please make the effort to visit other link users and leave them a comment to make their day!
  • Link will be open until Sunday 25/10/15


  1. I've put your badge on my linky page. I'm loving the country Tea Party, I need to find a pattern supplier in the UK xx

  2. The new button looks great. Love the little stitchery you are working on. Hopefully you'll have some time to trace and stitch this week.

  3. Oh, wow! Thumbnails as well as a new button. :) I just got it embedded on my link-ups page for Mondays. I had to go look at the tea BOM - how cute can you get? :) And looking at your Flowerville photo - how do you mark your designs? It looks so neat and precise. I've only done tracing onto fabric once so far, and it slips around and moves in little stretches so that it's seemingly impossible to get a perfectly precise tracing on the lightboard.

  4. The Country Tea Party is so sweet. Thanks for the party invite, I've added the button on my blog.

  5. Nice Button! I'm impressed! I'll switch it out for the new one in a bit, but for now...I'm linking up!

  6. I love the button too Cath. You have certainly got lots to keep you busy.

  7. Very snazzy linky button.
    Gorgeous new tea party block, hope you get to make some progress on your lovely projects
