Beautiful stitches. Can't wait to see the finished pillow.

Several garden 'experts' say to add a bit of dish detergent to a spray bottle, fill with water and spray the aphids. I guess it discourages the aphids but doesn't hurt the roses. I need to get my spray bottle ready - if we ever have enough warm weather to have roses!

All beautiful! The handwork and the roses. I use to hand embroider. Made crazy quilts and pillows and such. Had a lot of fun. Used beads and made spider webs in the corners of projects with that thread that glitters. Then made little spiders on the web out of beads. It was a lot of fun. But early hand surgeries/car wreck gave me arthritis in them. My quilting/embroidering days are likely over. But you have fun. There's nothing besides gardening (my pasttime) more therapeutic for the mind than hand work.

How beautiful! I'm just now learning (again) to embroider. I hope mine looks that pretty someday! Beautiful garden too!

I can't wait to see the finished pillow. I'm still working on my lemon table runner that I blogged about a while back. It really is taking a while to finish! I miss read,although to my credit it was in French, the directions for the color of the butterfly and had to tear out the whole thing :( I really want to get it done in time for a table setting in June for my daughters graduation. I hope you get yours done.

Andrea, your embroidery is just beautiful can not wait to see it all done. Clarice

Oh man! I'm fighting that same battle with the aphids down here. I've never seen them this bad. I think I am going to go buy some lady bugs next. I love my roses. It is the one thing you can count on to bloom in our heat.

I love your embroidery - I have that pattern and should really dig it out. Wonder what else I have hiding that I've forgotten about. Oh that thought makes me shudder, LOL. Beautiful roses.

I've become completely intrigued by your floss spools. Did you make them yourself? Can I post your photo of them on my blog (along with a link to your site)?

By the way, I love your site. I've been reading back posts for days.
