Love is a Rose

Well, it's finally finished. I stitched and I stitched and then I stitched some more. As you know I wasn't sure if I was going to "Stitch it or Ditch it!" You encouraged me to continue, so I did even though the color scheme was way outside of my wheelhouse.


I present to you my "Love is a Rose." It was inspired by the song written by Neil Young, and sung by Linda Ronstadt. They say, "Love is a rose but you better not pick it. It only grows when it's on the vine."


I think that's what true love is all about. The longer it is on the vine the stronger it grows. There may be some thorns along the way, but there is always another day of blooms on the vine. To me this applies to all kinds of love, not just "married" love. There is great love in all things, even the things with thorns.

The pattern is available as a PDF download in my Craftsy shop.


I also have twelve (only twelve right now) Complete kits available in MY SHOP. The kit contains everything you need to make the project.

This is also a Class I am teaching. If you belong to a guild and would like to have me come share a "Play Date" with you, please click on the tab at the top for more information. We have lots of fun and I would truly love to come and meet you!

Wishing you a wonderful Valentines Day with those who are most precious to your heart.

xx,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina kitty

You are just a wiz. How you pump out such beauty only reminds me of the magic of the rose bush, or any tree or flower or plant for that matter. To bloom from a seed into something lovely to the senses, now that is magic. THE REDS LOOK GREAT HERE, SHELL! Isn't it marvelous to not ditch, but to continue with something? You never know what it will bloom into. You succeeded well, and look what you have to show for it.

HAVE ANOTHER FUN DAY! Anita
