I had a lovely time stitching last night. It has been so hot the last couple of days that I have stayed inside and had more time for my sewing. I managed to cut out all the one and a half inch strips ready for piecing. Then the fun began in the evening joining and cross cutting to add them for my border around my finished stitchery blocks. It actually took longer than I thought but in the end I was pleased with the result. That completes blocks one and two of Scandinavian Rose by Rosalie Quinlan. Radka is also stitching this quilt but chose to stitch hers in a lovely shade of red thread Anchor stranded cotton no 13 you can check out her progress here at my stitching and other journeys.
Also I have just visited suzitee at stitch scap sew to view her lovely Scandinavian Rose blocks they are gorgeous if you would like to check them out just click on the link.
