First Roseville Album block finished





I finished this block last week.

Thank you for all the suggestions for the vase fabric. The red was the most popular suggestion, so I went with it.

No more sewing is going to happen here for a while. I need to keep resting my elbow.

Here are a few photos from my garden today.









Have a great week everyone! :)

  14. Wonderful block! The red just looks stunning and I love the flowers too. Our trees, flowers, shrubs and plants are just about all burnt up from the heat, so it's a treat to see yours, thank you!!!

  16. Your block is beautiful - love your use of fabric. I understand having to rest from handwork. I few years ago I saw a physical therapist about my elbows. She worked with me on my posture and gave me stretching and strengthening exercises. She suggested I see a massage therapist. What a great excuse! I go every 2 weeks and it is wonderful. I rarely have pain in my elbows now and when I do it is mild and I recover much more quickly. I still have some issues with my hands - I think arthritis is settling in - I'm 50 now - but I feel so much better than I did before PT and MT.
    All these flowers are blooming at the same time?!?! How lovely!
