Roses and daffodils...

As I promised yesterday, here is my completed "Roses & Daffodils" design for the next issue of my magazine. 
I decided to frame it after all!
A mixture of Flower Sugar & Pam Kitty Morning fabrics in tiny one inch squares for the piecing...
...and Anchor threads on handkerchief linen for the stitched blocks.
DMC Perle #12 cottons for the hand quilting...
...and a large 11 x 15 inch white frame from Big W to give the design a home!
Looks lovely in those happy colours don't you think?
~~~~~
Now to piece these finished embroideries into another design for the next issue.
Watch out for something different...maybe blocks starting with 'D'? Can you guess which one?
These are four of my favourite words...
Family - those whom God has given me through blood, marriage, and friendship.
Love - what Jesus has shown me and continues to teach me.
Faith - that I can trust He who holds my world in His hands.
Hope - in all my tomorrows.

What are four of your favourite words?
