The Bride Has Arrived!



Here she is - finally finished - for me it was quite and effort to get her made-over and looking beautiful - never mind!


This beautiful rose bush greets me as I walk our my front door - I feel like I am in heaven with my roses!


The sweetest gifts arrived a couple of days ago - thank you so very much 'Angelina' - no, no, really they are from Helena all the way from Sweden and I really love the time and thought she has put into my beautiful gift - thank you so much, Helena! I am using this new? fangled thingo to Post and have yet to familiarize myself with it and as I am off to the WAQA Christmas party now, I must dash. Helena can be visited on http://www.syverkstan-helena.blogspot.com/.

Thanks you for all you lovely Comments recently and I will get to say hello individually, hopefully tomorrow.
Happy Day!

This Bride quilt is going to be a real heirloom.
I see folks making grooms but I don't see him in the pictures of the finished quilt. Is this a quilt where you have multiple choices as to the blocks you want to make?

Happy sewing

Lurline, the Bride is absolutely amazing. Your work is beyond words lovely. ...and ohhh but I love your rosebush. Was this thanks to the work from the handyman helper guy a few weeks back? Doing the yard that day as I recall? ...not sure if my brain is right on that but I think I remember...
