Recovery and my finished block

A while back I posted about this rose bush called Angel Face that my friend Cindy gave me after my mom's funeral service. I planted it on Labor Day, which was two days after her birthday but I wasn't sure if it was going to make it.

But it came back just look at this beautiful blossom! And this rose has such a beautiful scent. Remember when people used to talk about inventing smellavision? Now we need smellablog. :o)

And on sewing news, I finally finished my Berry Picking BOM on Monday night. This was the last block and one of the biggest but I love it.
And then last night I got the row sewed to the main piece. Now to sew on borders but I'm trying to decide if I should just finish it up with the fabric from the kit or if I should add a bigger border so it fits a bed. Oh, the thoughts that go through this tired old head of mine. Maybe a good nights sleep will help me decide.

I am so happy the rose bloomed for you, just so meaningful. I still have a plant I was given 9 yrs ago when my brother passed away, every time I look at it I remember him and smile.

I adore your BPP quilt. I plan on starting this next month, I just need to go pick out fabrics. Yours are perfect, especially your background.
