Hello and Welcome to Rose Wednesday hosted by Jan of Jan & Tom's Place. Please stop by and see Jan to get a list of all the participants.
Feel free to click on the picture to get a good large view of the picture!

First I have for you an silk embroidered pillow that I made for a giveaway on my charity blog, Stitches of Love. Lorena of Rose Chic Friends was the winner of this pretty pillow.

I embroider these pretty pillows on crisp white Irish Linen. Then I make a pillow form and fill with some fresh lavender.

Next I have a Cath Kidson clothes pin bag with roses.

I just finished framing this pretty embroidered sewing machine and quilt with of couse a "rose". I love this embroidered piece and I'm anxiously getting things ready for when I paint my sewing room capricious pink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I'm off to look at more roses with Jan! I look forward to visiting with you again.
Blessings, Shirl

Alsolutely beautiful! I love embroidery, but haven't quite gotten the skills down yet. But I've only just started. It'll be a while before I am brave enough to post a picture. I'm also distracted by the ribbon and don't want to use it, I'm content to just look at it and imagine the pretty things I want to make.

Hi Shirl, Your pillows are simply gorgeous and the sewing pic for your new pink room is beautiful.
Saw your lollipops~~ they are incredible and look good enough to eat. Congrats to Lorena!
You are such a talent and so inspiring.
Have a great evening.
HUGS, Celestina
