Rose Delight

Saturday, April 17, 2010
Roses are definitely right up there for me!  They would have to be the flower I most love to embroider and I've spent years developing my signature style of grub roses, always hoping one day to work a perfect one!  Some of my sweet little buds have been nearly there, but one day I might make it with a full-blown rose!  Thankfully, the imperfections seem to be hidden fairly well when there are a lot of roses and I was quite pleased over all with how my Rose Delight Etui turned out.  You saw some sneak peaks last year, but here's the whole picture now that it has been published.


And the other side:

and here it is open with all its little pockets and a pincushion for your stitching necessities:

If you want to look at some close ups, you can go back here.

The Etui has now been published in Australian Country Craft and Decorating Vol 21/9 if you would like the pattern.

 
For those of you who do not have access to our wonderful Australian magazines and you would like to purchase the pattern, I have put it on the website.

Happy Stitching
