  Sew the three rows together:
 Whoops!! See my mistake?

Rip out....

The Rancher's darling mom,
always had a rose garden at every house we lived.
And still does to this day.
She always has cut roses in the house too.
Must be where I got my love for them.

She is 84 and still quite a lady.
The Rancher, his wife and daughter!
    Happy Sewing My Friends....
