Joyful Patterns from Joy

The wonderfully talented and vivacious Joy visited with us at our Christmas Fair and promised to send some of her patterns for our Group's Library, Thank you so much Joy for being so generous and supportive of our Group.

Well they arrived.........5 of them..........can you imagine! ohh so yummy patterns all of them

A pattern for a Binder Carry-All, this little beauty fits an A4 ring binder, there are pockets galore, to carry your stitchery or blocks, scissors, needles, threads and even a place for your pattern.

Plenty of scope to use those little scraps that you cannot bear to throw away, there is even pattern sheets..........yes sheets, in country and script to embroider roses and your name on the spine.

I can see a whole series of these for each embroidery and patchwork project........should I colour code them do you think?
or go for the eclectic look?


Then there is this fabulous Box Bag,  it has 3 inner pockets, one with a closing flap and 2 smaller open pockets for your phone and ipod, a large front pocket and best of all it folds flat, so a super second bag to take along when shopping.

Isn't this the best? beautiful grub roses in sprays on the corners and yes, there is a pattern for the embroidery and great directions on the assembly and placement of the grub roses................o.k., yeah, I did peek, but only because I had to take the patterns out of their envelopes for photography purposes...........really!, honest! I will be waiting until they are checked into the Library before I start stitchin' until I bust.
This large sewing tote open up flat, lots of pockets so that everything is at your fingertips.  Nice long handles to go over the shoulder - great pattern.

Well, didn't Grandie number 2 think he would like one of these quilties, Ohh, sweetie, stand in line, what a wonderful fresh and innovative pattern, straight cut blocks on the front and angled cut blocks for the back, quilt as you go for a fun reversible quilt with 2 very different looks.
And the last pattern I will show you is this wonderful beauty, a recent pattern of Joys......'Under Lock and Key' is a large tote, just perfect for taking your patchwork blocks along to class or group meetings, it has the cutest ruffle front and back.                          The front has a sweet little embroidered heart featuring an applique lock centered in a patchwork block. The tote unfolds to lay flat - just perfect to keep your blocks clean and wrinkle free.
How lucky are we, to receive all these fab patterns from Joy.!!

Anyone not able to wait until end of January for a pattern,.............lets meet for coffee and a little bribery.

Thank you so much Joy, these patterns will be much loved and used by the Group.

What is it they say  in the newspaper world?.......'Hold the Presses',
I really feel like yelping out those words or something similar..........just popped over to see what Joy has been up to and after reading her post on her wonderful family, down at the bottom, in Red No Less, is the most amazing news, Joy is putting a daily special in her sidebar for Christmas, one of her PDF patterns for only $5.00   That is less than half price  
The first pattern being offered is "Dragonflight", a beautiful quilt of 5 sashed rows with a dragonfly appliqued in flight formation to each row.

Go on Girls, pop over and have a drool, and if you don't have pay-pal or find it difficult to order,  give me a tingle on the phone, I will organise it for you and you can pay me when Patchwork starts back, this offer is too good to miss and it would be lovely to support such a prolific and wonderful Aussie designer.  Go knock yourselves out.

O.K. really gotta go now, have some shopping to do...........yay, dontch just love the internet?!!
