Ongoing projects

I love this pink and green quilt, completely hand pieced and quilted except that I did put the binding on by machine. It has been in the making about 3 years, as I keep putting it aside to work on other projects. I just need to finish hand quilting a few squares. I am determined to have it finished for June, as I think of it as my Summer Rose Quilt. In fact it is based on a pattern called Canadian Flower Garden.

My latest pair of socks from Cookie A.'s book are stalled, sitting beside the sofa waiting for attention . .
