Love is in the air

This block is trickier than it looks.  My first 'E' was so narrow that I had to start it all over again.  I am very happy with the final result and the completed quilt is going to be very bright and uplifting. In my photo the 'O' looks blue but it is purple.

I was having my lunch to day and reading the paper and I noticed that the date was the 17th June and I thought to myself, why do I know that date?...someone's birthday?... no! it's our wedding anniversary.  17 years of marriage (and seven years going out together before that).    Calum was out hillwalking, Arabella is on a mountain hike with school and Flora is off cycling with her friend so I had no-one to share the news with.  Calum is home now so we have decided to go out for dinner next Saturday evening to celebrate.

So, on the theme of love I have taken some photos of the the things I love in my garden.  There is the beautiful vine which grows up the front of our house, the lavender under the cherry tree, the pink roses on the driveway, and of course, my husband Calum.

  5. Happy Anniversary Linsay! I like all of your creative ways of posting your work...on the snow, with your daughter, with the dog, and now with your husband. What will you think of next? :-) My favorite letter is the "V" those colors look amazing together.
