Shabby Linen Quilt finished!!!

My shabby linen quilt looked good before I threw it in the washing machine and dryer but it looked amazing when I took it out! The frayed edge gives the quilt so much texture. I am so in love with it. My son has spent the afternoon under it on the sofa so it is obviously snuggly also.
I am not convinced I should plant many roses at my new home which is disappointing as I love them. I had over 30x roses at my previous home which thrived. The foliage keeps getting eaten, I think by possums. This particular rose "Double Delight" was given to me as a housewarming gift. Luckily it is still flowering beautifully despite the half-eaten leaves.

My DD Mary, 12, has a green thumb. She planted this bed out with daffodils without my help in Autumn and now look how pretty this bed is.

Good luck with the roses. Thankfully mine are safe from possums and such. Guarded by

Well done DD M! Must be nice for her to see her work show! I hope the boys feel the same after all they have done this weekend in our garden!
