Romeo Roses!

Do you get excited when you finish a project that seems to have taken forever?
I sure do!
After stitching Romeo Roses in January, and then not being happy with the final thread colour choices, I decided to re-stitch it in February, using the sweetest of Cottage Garden threads as my palette. 
I really wanted this design to compliment my style, and now that it is complete I couldn't be happier.

So, without further ado, may I present my newest pattern, Romeo Roses...
 
 
The fabric in the border is a print from Joanna Figueroa's "Gypsy Rose" line, the colours matching perfectly with the threads I used...
The photos were taken using my new 'birthday' camera, and as I was setting the scene a little friend thought he'd pop himself into the photo shoot too...
 
The stitchery pattern will be available very soon, already printed onto handkerchief linen - so much easier than tracing!

****
Have a happy and joy-filled weekend! 
We'll probably go for a ride when it's fine, then potter around home between the predicted rain storms.
I'll leave you with this photo I took last weekend when Mr E and I rode up the mountain just before sunset...

 ...it was breathtaking.
