Roses, I just love them :o)


I have a soft spot when it comes to roses. I've always loved them. When I painted on porcelain, I painted roses. Now when I'm into sewing, I just love the fabrics with roses. Soft roses, big roses, small roses. They are just so beautiful... Where we used to live, I had roses outside our house. I miss that, and I assure you I'll plant some outside here, where we're living today :o)
I painted this coffee cup back in 2001. It's standing in my sewing room, for the inspiration maybe?


Last night I did one more block for one of the quilts I'm doing. I also got to cut some pieces for three more, and I hope to get to sew them later today. I didn't get to sew more, because i just couldn't leave my knitting :O) I'm almost done with one more mitten now :O)
It's a beautiful Spring day today, with some sunshine, so I guess I'll be spending some time outside :o)

Your china painted rose is beautiful. I love the effect in the green leaves too.
Enjoy your sunny day!

Flott krus og rose tøy du har:-) Helt enig at der er flott. Det er vist in i tiden med romatiske rose tøy. Håper du får deg oversetter på siden din;-))
Ha en fin og kreativ uke
