Scandinavian Rose!

This will bring back memories! In the 'olden' days we were taught embroidery in 'Prep' - it was done on sewing cards. Then, of course, in my late teens, I had enough doyleys in my glory box to cover every nook and cranny! Oh, this is a bit embarrassing - today young women would be reading Fifty Shades of Grey instead of doing satin stitch, lol!I am big fan of Rosalie Quinlan and couldn't pass this gorgeous creation - I really love it! I intend plodding along and making it a family heirloom - progress will be slow.


Sometimes I think I need a bomb under me - I have been fiddling with my blog, while doing a bit of secret handwork. I still haven't jumped over to the new interface - scaredy cat! Who can give me a bit of encouragement.

Happy stitching!

I'm waiting to see what you are going to do with those + and X blocks. I am sewing row 9 now and have yet to see one quilt using those blocks. Why figure out that new interface...they will just change everything a few months after you do.

Love that design Lurline..and the new header looks great.
I din't like the new interface, but I guess we will have to change over soon or they'll do it for us..
Hugs Julia ♥

looking good.........I float between both interfaces........some things are much easier in the old one.......did you want me to make it wider???

Enjoy the slow and steady stitching - It really is much more productive than wasting time on the latest techy stuff.
