Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Favorite roses are white or yellow

I kind of got distracted from the original rose. I want to buy fabric for it and I won't do that until this afternoon. Still wanting to work on roses I decided to experiment with another rose design. Something I can use for a charity quilt if I don't like how it turns out.

Of course I had to have help cutting out the pieces. I didn't know a two year old could use sissors. Well, not perfectly but it's her first time using them. I have to be sure to keep them out of sight when I'm not around or else she might wind up with short hair.

Here's the rose I started playing around with. It's raw edge applique with some scrap pieces I sewed together for a background. The scraps looked like someone had used them for applique before donating them to me. Kind of like swiss cheese until I pieced it back together again.

Today I've got several errands to run. I'm bundled up in layers and hopefully won't have to wait too long on the buses. Sometimes they run late and some lines have been cut down to half as many runs.

Love the yellow roses and anxious to see what other colors you put together. Oh, and make sure you have a scarf wrapped around your mouth to keep the cold air out...we don't need you sick again now that you are back with us.
