Yes, there are roses everywhere. No real ones, unfortunately, but stitched ones are almost as good.
When I completed this little heart I was almost ridiculously happy with it. It only measures a little over one inch in height! Cross stitch on waste canvas and silk ribbon flowers.
This rose reminds me of the embroidery that my grandmother did. Just simple outline stitch.
A yellow rose - done using a blackwork pattern, also on waste canvas.
(Do you think I ought to have stock in the waste canvas company?)
Today the quote is from William Hazlitt...."None but those who are happy in themselves can make others so"
