Sorta done

Over the weekend I completed the outside of my rose hussif and now it's on to the goodies I'll be putting inside.  These photos overlap somewhat because it's impossible to get just certain sections (altho' I guess I could have cropped them, couldn't I?). 

For some reason, known only unto Blog-grrrrrr, I can't manage to space down to put my usual quote at the bottom of my post (what's up with that??!!)....so I'll put it here....

Today the quote is from Martin Luther King.... "All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence"

Absolutely gorgeous work! Your hussif is going to be spectacular.

I don't know if spacing down for your quote would work the same or not. Sometimes when I try to add an image, blogger refuses to add it where I am asking it to (and it pops up earlier in the post.) I found that if I remove the image, save, close the browser and then return the issue is resolved and I can add the photo where I wanted it.
