Welcome to my stop on the Fruitful Hands Blog Tour. I hope you’ve been having fun visiting with Jacquelynne Steves and the other guests this week.

Fruitful Hands

I first met Jacquelynne and her lovely daughter at Quilt Market last year. You might also remember having met her earlier this year when she sponsored one of our weekly contests too.

Jacquelynne’s first book, Fruitful Hands, is simply delightful. It contains 14 gorgeous projects including: machine appliqued wall hangings, wool felt floor mat, painted recipe box, stitchery and more. Also included are 12 delicious sounding recipes… I can’t wait for the weather to cool off so I can try the Orange Chocolate Chip Scones.

The photos and colour illustrations throughout the book are simply gorgeous. Here’s a sample page:

Download a free project and a recipe [PDF] from the book, Pineapple Welcome wall hanging and the Pineapple Bread Pudding recipe… yummy!!

A few more photos from the book:

You can order an autographed copy of the book directly on Jacquelynne’s, The Noble Wife web site or through Amazon.


Jacquelynne has donated a copy of Fruitful Hands to be given away to one of my blog readers. Additionally, I’ll also be giving away, to a second winner, an Aurifil thread sampler pack and a Lapel glue stick.

    We have had a bumper crop of blackberries this year, so I picked an extra quart and took them in to my karate instructors for a tasty midday snack.

    I watched a friends kids while her husband had surgery. She dropped the kids off at 5 am. It was a fun day for my daughter too.

    I just paid to serve on a Christian retreat weekend where we slept on the floor of a church, didn’t go to bed before midnight and awoke before 5am, ran up and down stairs, hiding wonderful surprises for a group of women for 4 days! The most exhaustingly wonderful time of my life!!

    This looks like such a sweet book, I’d love to have a copy. And you just can’t beat Aurifil thread–may fave!

    My husband and I often make up food baskets to give to people in our small rural community who are out of work or have been sick. It’s a great way to help others. Though it does feel awkward to share a good deed. Thanks for this chance to win and to read all the wonderful comments!!
