I always think I'm going to do that motif (or seam etc.) again but seldom do. So I went back through some old RRs and found some of my favorite bits I could reuse in this cottage series. The first being this stumpwork garden lady. It was based on a logo I did for my nursery business about 25 years ago.. A version of it will be on my June CQJP2013 block.
On one of the blocks I want a rose arbor and two I've done in the past which I liked was a lace arbor and a twig arbor. The twig arbor was for Ati and is on a piece of lace her grandmother made.The trick here was to have the arbor and cover as little of the lace as possible.
