Love is in the Air


If you know my DH you would be just as surprised, he has only bought me flowers once in the 15 years we have been together, I come home to see these gorgeous Roses.

Love is in the air….everywhere I look around…(appologies to those that won`t be able to get this song out of their head for the rest of the day)


They are just starting to show their centers and I was fortunate that I found the vase (3 sided) they were in at a yard sale a couple of years ago, I usually have my dried hydrangeas in it but they got tossed in a flash.


I have been working on my BOAF block that is 2/3 done and also my baskets as you can see below I have them all appliqued on there is about 25 of them our of 2oo and some odd, and now I am doing the little square in the middle.


I will have to dig in my scrap barrels and get some more baskets cut and ready for travelling.

Next week I will going to Rose Marie`s house with Mary we are flying to North Bay, it is just so exciting! we are counting the moments!

  8. Deb, your DH sounds like mine, but he is a keeper. Love all of your projects and fabric choices.

  9. Lovely roses. I got some on Jan 28 for our 47th anniversary. My DH talked those flowers into lasting right up to, but not including Valentines Day.....giggle. They were starting to get a little stinky, but I loved them anyway.
