Falling in love...again ;)

With each block that I finish on my Scandinavian Rose quilt, I fall a little bit more in love.

 I got off easy this month...the stitchery is comparitively small, and I started stitching it late in January (couldn't resist making an early start), so I'm finished nice and early.

Which is probably a good thing...the stitchery for March is HUGE!

It's a scorcher here in Perth today, and I'm planning on turning the air conditioner on and settling into some machine quilting, and Farmers Wife block construction...unless the children's laughter from the pool lures me in that direction ;)

Hope you have a wonderful day

I think I'm falling in love with this quilt too! The embroidery is so pretty and graphic, and of course the fabric is terrific as well!

Swimming sounds fun, it's quite cold here today, but bright & bearutiful! I think we're going to bundle up and go for a ride on the Vespa's in a little bit, to heck with the cold!

Have a great day, Suz!
