Block 5 - Free Pattern

I've been quite overwhelmed at the response I have had to my "What is Love" free BOM pattern. I just love it when people like my designs!!!!

So here is the next instalment - Block 5 which you can download from here. (If you are wondering, YES, I was late with the August Block 4, so this is really the September download.)

This little statement about love is one of my favourites. I can remember once when I really had to put this into practice! I received a very nasty letter from someone (it was in the days when people actually wrote letters!) and my first reaction was: "I am going to keep this as evidence of how unkind this person was."

Then I remembered that "Love keeps no record of wrongs". If I was to express true love in my life, then I needed to rip the letter up and literally not keep a record of it. It was a very freeing experience.

Hope you enjoy stitching this little block.

Hi Val!

I love your BOM, it is filled with such lovely and life-giving verses! I hope you don't mind but I've just blogged about it...I know there are a lot of bloggers out there who have not yet discovered it. :-)

I just discovered your blog and love your BOM. I have printed them and will start as soon as the chaos is gone(if ever). I'm not really a purple person but this I am doing in memory of my mother who loved purple of all shades.
Thanks for sharing this and look forward to reading and seeing what you have been up to.
