i have been cutting some more circles in red, blue and white/cream!!!!!
my other circles are nearly finished, the quilting that is, not long to go now!!!!!!!!!
i am doing the fussy cutting and choosing the fabrics of these and a friend is stitching them, to probably go on this bed, in the new house i showed you in the last post.
earlier this year i told you that my dad shared the same birth year as the famous tasmanian, errol flynn! well today my dad would have turned 100, being born in hobart on the 27th october, 1909. i picked these roses out of the garden just to remember the occasion and their old fashioned sweet smell reminded me of the gentle ways of a dear old man who died six years ago. he always said 'if i die', not 'when i die', but passed very peacefully at home in the end, he was content and ready! another of his regular comments, when he was old was, never to say goodbye, he thought that sounded too final, he preferred au revoir!
i will tell you later how i spent the day!
