The Rose Garden - Update No. 7

And now for something completely different...

I want to wait until a finish to show you more efforts on the Queen of the Seas, dear readers, so I figured I needed to do a little stitching on something that I can present. Consequently, I've spent the week working on different projects, for a change - The Rose Garden and Three Hearts.

Voila! A picture of The Rose Garden. Search back and you will see that it's just over a year since my last update. Oh boy! I haven't added a pic of Three Hearts. Blogger is being temperamental about adding pics today.

While I've happily progressed from aida to evenweaves, but I'm not particularly fond of working on linen. Nevertheless, these projects gradually advance towards the finish line.

My big news is that I have been through the stash pile (smaller than some people's, larger than others) and have found a 'new' favourite fabric. It's called Queen Anne's Lace. It was given to me a few years ago but looked a putty colour in the package. I finally took it out of its wrappers the other day and found, to my surprise, a beautiful piece of hand dyed green fabric. I'm going to start my Rules for Happiness again using this fabric, when I finish my mermaid. Er ... and when I've finished at least one chair on my SAL that has sadly been languishing on the shelf.

Happiness & laughter to one and all. Enjoy the Easter break, if you do Easter.

Love this design, I always have. The sad thing is that it was one of the first things I ever started stitching. It took me years to end up finishing it. Not long after completing it the ex and I split so I have no idea what he did with it - the bin no doubt. It never even got framed. I still have the pattern, I may have to do it again.
