Another I Spy but with a sort of colour wash
Ive already recieved the next bundle of Jelly rolls/layer cake in the Blueberry pie colour way from Moda,more on that later,they ll will be my Christmas stuff to play with on the couple days I have off which includes binding my own scrap quilt My first big bunch of roses,peace and Mr Linconl?

Lastly my water colour card for Mum!


  1. I love the quilts, full of bright colours.

    My Dad grew the most amazing peace rose. It always had blooms on it except in the middle of winter. When I was young, the original Swanes nursery was at the bottom of our street. When they moved away from the nursery and the home, dad was told he could take anything from the garden that he wished as the place was going to be bulldozed. He took dozens of roses as Swanes specialised in them and later grew them at Narromine in western NSW.

    Ben Swane, still alive but in nineties I guess developed many roses here and dad later found himself again near the nursery. They've now been taken over.

  2. I remember going past Swanes near Narromine and wishing I could visit,the peace rose I think is one of the best,heavy multi petalled bloom gorgeosu colurs and rich thick green leaves! Your dads so lucky!!
