Design Board Monday #28 - Getting on Board!

Scroll Down for Design Board Monday LINKY
Now I know that there are a lot of you out there who just love Jenny Elefantz stitchery designs, you might even be in her stitchery club....I am. I have rather a large collection of JE stitcheries which I am yet to start, including this find in a magazine (front cover!) ....OK, I have my hands full with a few BOM's atm....but now I have no further excuse.

Why? Because there is a NEW Stitchery Linky dedicated to Jenny's Designs. The Stitch-In Linky has been created by Susan from CQ4Fun, an idea she shared with me last year after a comment I left on her post.  I am so pleased for Susan to have this idea off the ground and I hope that you will pop over on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month to link up your "Jenny Designs".

I am on Board....are you?

*please forward any questions to Susan....not Jenny, as she does not play a contributory part, although she does endorse the linky.

What? You don't have any Jenny Designs to stitch? You can find them HERE on Craftsy or you could join Jenny's Stitchery Club 

Here's what I worked on this week

Nearly there.....keep scrolling

I ran out of that wonderfully coloured yarn so had to source something similar....there was only one ball of it left at the original outlet.

I searched everywhere to find a similar weight, ply and chunkiness of yarn and eventually ended up at Big W....an unlikely spot but I remembered that they do sell a limited selection of yarn and "VOILA"....I found a few choices of colour.   I went with this blue variation.

I does give the blanket a dirty appearance rather than the fresh look that I was going for but I am going to add another colourway into the mix and see what happens.

What do you have to share for this week?

  • Link will be open until Sunday 3.4.2016.
  • Link anything that you are working on this week or over the past week....needle and thread is all it takes.

 Linking with:


  1. Hi Cathy i love Jenny's designs and love the wool you are using my friend ,hope you have a lovely day my friend xx

  2. Love the colors for your blanket.

  3. What a great idea to have a link up for Jenny's lovely designs.... I have never stitched any of her designs... yet! I do have some that I must add to my 'to do' list! Love your yarn! Christine!

  4. Thanks for linking to MCM Cath! I am not familiar with Jenny's designs, but I will be checking them out. Have a great week!

  5. Thanks for spreading the news for Susan, Cathy! And thanks for the lovely encouragement you've offered about my work. Bless you heaps!

    Your wool reminds me of faded/worn denim...and that means comfort and well loved. :-)

  6. Thanks! It was so nice of you to show the linky. This coming Saturday is it, so maybe a few more people will stop by. I think another colorway of yarn that ties those two together, or is as light as the first, even if completely different in color, would be wonderful. I love what I can see of the stitch.

  7. And I linked my post from cq4fun!

  8. I really like working with variegated yarns myself. Love the colours of the new yarn!


  9. Lovely yarn and I love Jenny's designs, too, although I have too much other crafting going on to stitch any - lol!
