At Christmas time Peggy and I were given two rose bushes. When our brother Norman was staying he lovingly planted them out for us. His care and attention has paid off because we have had our first blooms.
This is dazzling splash of colour is Golden Tribute:
and this beauty is Mary Rose:
Aren’t we lucky?
I am getting my stitching Mojo back. I have been quilting a quilt made from a Bonnie Hunter mystery pattern Pictures of that to follow soon. I have just completed these micro wave bowls for a family member:
I have written about these before. The pattern I use can be found at Tamarack Shack. I did discover a little speed up tip. When I cut my batting I cut it ½ an inch smaller than the fabric square. I put a wee puff of quilting spray on the middle of the fabric and centred the batting on top. The spay holds the batting in place until the darts are stitched, this eliminates the need for Step 7, trimming the batting.
