A New Project

Firstly Id just like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on the Family Values Quilt....I have endeavoured to thank u all personally but a couple did not have a reply email, so please accept my thanks!!
Quilting has begun and it is going really well (no flying broken needles this time lol) but it is going to take some time so i needed a new project for those in between moments when im curled up in the recliner with the family.
For some time now, I have had my next 2 designs floating around in my head, so last nite i started drawing them up and now i have one ready for stitching:

This one is for the centre of the medallion quilt i am planning to do....its a bit hard to see, but in the centre is a house and there is a lovely little verse that goes around the stitchery....all of which i will show better later on. I didnt realise how much i missed stitching until i sat down after dinner tonite and started. These projects r great for the school holidays because i can take them wherever we go and get small sections completed plus on these long cold winter nites, its great to be sitting in front of the heater with a mug of hot chocolate, stitching away!!!

Once again, thanks so much for ur encouragement, ur kind words and ur friendship!
Take care,
Rose xxx


  1. Oh... that house is really cozy, reminds me of a house that was on a children's tv program when I was a little girl! All you need is to add a giraffe in the up-stairs window *lol* I used to love that show! Getting sentimental now... Looking forward to seeing this develop :o)

  2. Can't wait to see how it progresses Rose, I admire your ability to stitch so beautifully!

  3. Oh, Rose, you are preparing us such a lovely pattern ! Can't wait seeing it complete, and being able to order it !

    Hugs & smiles !

  4. I'm sure your new project will be everybit as stunning as your last. You do such beautiful work!

  5. Can't wait to see more. I know it will be gorgeous. We have central heating and it's just not the same curling up under a vent with your cuppa,lol. I have heater envy,haha.

  6. A wonderful start to a new project. Enjoy the hot chocolate and the stitching.

  7. Hi Rose,
    Looking forward to seeing more pic's on this project!! I have just come home from the country quilter with one of your patterns - The Journal Cover - Just fell in love with it!!
    Keep up the good work, Sarah ;)

  8. What I could see of it, it is going to be adorable! Your family values quilt is stunning, I love the colors you used, it is so beautiful!

  9. can't wait to see the block finished. It's going to look real nice.

  10. Hard to think of cold winter nights as we go into summer! This design looks so beautiful. I am going to love seeing it in all those colors. Still wondering if you will be selling the family values as a pattern. I'd love to have it, and willing to pay lots of postage!

  11. You have such cute stitcheries. Can't wait to see a bit more of the house. Thanks for sharing.
