Joining a new quilt-along.... very late from Espritpatch

When the Halo Quilt Along was announced back in March, I had all intentions to join in with the fun. I ordered the book, printed the template and set on using my stash of Liberty fabrics. But I worked on other projects and never got started... 

Finally earlier this month, I got my box of Liberty out and went through those packs of scraps I had bought over the years to start cutting the pieces.

A Reflection on Acts 2:42-47 and the modern Church during Covid-19 18 May 2020 This week, I was reflecting on the Church (all churches – for my studies); the functions of the Church as it was in the Early Church as seen in Acts compared to the functions of the Modern Church, as we are living it now (or least as we experienced it before the Covid19 pandemic and during the lockdown), and I started wondering, where has our passion gone.

Something new.... from Espritpatch

It's been a while since I have joined a cross-stitch along so I have been tempted again. I really like the Nutcracker Parade that Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery released before Christmas but I never managed to order the supplies to start it before Christmas unfortunately, too much work and too much on...

I finally ordered some lovely crystal hand-dyed linen fabric in December but it arrived while we were away so I found it on my return. And finally earlier this month,  I did the first few stitches... I am loving the colours, not sure how long it will take ...

How To Make An Old House Look New from Pippa Patchwork

Having your own house will be a great achievement for you. It does not matter if you are the one who has it built or already had. The important thing is it is yours, and you can have new beginnings in it.

If it is old and used, it does not mean it will stay as it is. You can always make it new and yours. 

1. Renovate Rooms

This will be one of the solutions if you want some things to change within your house. Maybe you would want to merge two rooms into one or have a bigger ...
