Toni rose and projects to come!

I got a little done on my Toni rose yesterday, so a small update for you all to see.
At first I wasn't sure of the browny yellow, the darkest colour, but I think as the greens are going in and I look at the overall design, it adds definition, so I'm happy with it.

What do you think?

I should hopefully get some more done on this tonight.  I can't wait to see the whole set completed.

I have a few more small projects that I have lined up waiting before going back to my larger ones. I know I keep putting the larger ones off, but I think I'm just having that much fun with these smaller finishes at the moment, and they don't require the amount of concentration that the larger ones would, so it's better for me at the moment.

Poor Steve still has no idea of his job situation. As things stand at the moment, he has 8 days left of employment. The contract ends on 31st of this month and they were meant to be getting a one year extension until March 2012, which would allow time for things to be sorted out with what would happen to the employee's. Now they can't agree terms for the extension, it could all be over.
I just wish we knew either way, the not knowing is the worst part.

Anyhow, to keep things on a brighter note rather than being a down, I'll show you the patterns for my next little projects. Sorry for the rubbish pictures, but you'll get the idea.

I'm so excited to start on these.



  1. your rose looks great!
    wonderful new projects! :)

  2. The rose looks great, not my fave colour but still very nice indeed.
    I have the "Time for God" sampler in my stash too, I will watch with interest.

  3. I do like the darker colour in the yellow rose. I think it is great that the set contains delicate and bold coloured roses. I also like the look of your up and coming projects. I love the "With faith" one.
    I can sympathise with your hubby's job situation. My hubby has been made redundant twice in our married life and not knowing where he stands must be awful for you both. I will be sending positive thoughts your way that his job situation will be resolved for very soon.

  4. Your roses are very pretty. Saw your comment on another blog and thought I'd pop in. I'll be calling in again.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
