Free Pattern - Gifts of Grace Block 6

Wow, where has the year gone?  We're already in the third week of July, so it's time to give you the next block in the Gifts of Grace free block of the month pattern.

I hope you like this little block and enjoy stitching it.
You can download the pattern from my website here.  Scroll down to find all 6 blocks.


Toadstools are one of my favourite things to draw, discover and photograph.  We seem to have so many different kinds in Australia.  Would you like to see some real life ones?

A fairy seat - the colour is real!:


 Tiny little mini toadstools:


A bit camouflaged, but look at the rich glorious colours:


Can you see the fairy hiding underneath?:

Could be Easter eggs?:

What an amazing world we live in - a good reason to be generous in our dealings with people, in giving praise where it is due, and above all praise to our great Creator God for His wonderful handiwork.

Happy stitching!

Oh my goodness - I do love this block. I have a fascination with toadstools, and even blogged about some I found in my yard one morning. I am up to block 4 and almost have it done. Now I have to hurry along so I can get to the toadstools! Thank you again for sharing your talents!

Val, you are so talented, I love this block so much! And your pics of the toadstools remind me of every fairy book I ever loved as a child. Thank you dear one for this beautiful block, and all of them!

Hi Elliesue
Glad you are enjoying the Gifts of Grace. Can you e-mail me the photo - I don't have a flicker group set up at the moment.

This time again a beautiful block. And yes, how wonderful everything is made. There is just One who could have made it. A pity that we are most of the time too busy to see al these wonders (hope you understand it, I am Dutch and I hope I have translated it well)

Hi Val - Thanks so much for the next block! And the pictures of the toadstools were wonderful! Here in Ohio, we don't have anything that unusual - it was a treat to see what God has created all around the world!
