A little while ago, I received a wonderful email from Ane, a dear blogging friend in Brazil. Ane has been following my "One Day In May" journey from the very beginning… and has left countless, treasured comments here which have been filled with uplifting words of kindness and encouragement. Thank you Ane!
I was tickled pink to see Ane's completed "As Roses Bloom" quilt! It's such a thrill to know that someone so very far from here is enjoying a design I've created.
Ane has kindly given her permission for me to share her photos with you too.
I was especially excited to see Ane's own unique additions to the design. Where I have placed two panels of script, Ane has added 2 beautiful, dimensional butterflies, each with a lovely quilted trail behind them. Each butterfly has begun it's flight from a beautiful stitched flower.
I feel so fortunate to have discovered new quilting and stitching friends from across the world… an unexpected and truly wonderful bonus to beginning "One Day In May". If you would like to visit Ane's blog… click HERE for the link.
I'd like to invite you to leave a comment, to let us know where you are from. We'd love to know! Please also share a link to your blog if you have one, so we can visit you too.
I've been teaching "As Roses Bloom" at Foothills Fabric and Threads this term and have thorougly enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to sharing some photos from the class with you. The "As Roses Bloom" pattern includes instructions for both the quilt and cushion. Kim is making a beautiful deep burgundy quilt. Diane and Marg are creating some gorgeous cushions in lovely creams and blues.
If you'd like to see my "As Roses Bloom" projects, you can find the photo albums here and here. If you'd like to create a quilt or cushion of your very own, please take a look at the "One Day In May" stockist list at the top left of the page.
Thank you for visiting today,
