IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE 'GROW YOUR BLOG' PARTY, YOU CAN SEE MY POST HERE.
Depending on your viewpoint considering snow vs. roses, you can decide for yourself which part of this post falls under 'yuck'!!
First of all, this is the view out my studio window as of a few minutes ago...
If you embiggen the picture, I think you can see the BIG snowflakes that are falling (and have been for much of the afternoon). See the build-up on my windowsill?
oh - and can you see a little mourning dove perched in the tree? He's hard to spot!!
Meanwhile, inside, I have been continuing the work on my rose-themed hussif. Remember my post of a few days ago where I showed you the free-standing rose? Well, I wasn't happy with it so I've added a couple of rows of buttonhole lace (in two different shades of pink) around the outside of the petals and now I'm much happier.
Above is the picture as it was the other day, and to the right is what I did today. Perhaps you can't see why I would 'fix' it, but trust me, when you see the overall project I think you'll understand!
I've also made another little pocket for the
inside of the hussif...
It's not a very great photo! The roses were done using cross stitch on waste canvas. The entire pocket measures approx. 5 x 4".
Today I give you a quote from Clarissa Pinkola Estes.... "I hope you will go out and let stories - that is life - happen to you and that you will work with these stories....water them with your blood and tears and your laughter til they bloom, til you yourself burst into bloom"
