A rose is a rose is a rose




The painted rose was a brooch in a former life and now has been treated like a shisha mirror.  Roses to the right were on a hankie.


Web stitches with lazy daisy 'petals' on top, and a teeny little cross stitched rose bud.



Spider web roses with lazy daisy leaves and french knots.


This rose was made with french knots in the middle and surrounded with stem stitch.








and....
do you remember my asking for help to 
increase the side of a pattern for a quilt
a couple of weeks ago?
Well, here are the fabrics for the
quilt top.
Just waiting for me to muster courage
to cut into them!

Today the quote is from Leo Buscaglia...."A single rose can be my garden...a single friend, my world"

"A rose by any other name" is still a gorgeous rose. And all of yours are gorgeous xx

I love your quote! These roses are such a delight to see. Thank you for sharing! I do not think I have seen the web stitches with the lazy daisy stitches before. What a lovely combination. (I may be trying that one out soon...) Beautiful work!
