    What a beautiful array of colours. Your roses are just beautiful. You must have a lovely garden.

    My stitching mojo is a little lacking of late also. I like your new CHS start.

    Hello:) I am new to your blog. Came here from Lisa V’s and so glad I did.

    Your roses are beautiful.

    Love your new CHS start. Looking forward to seeing more.

    I was just looking back and saw your beautiful Sally Spencer Sampler. What fabric did you stitch it on please? I have this chart and want to start it next year 🙂
