Rose Garden

 “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”

Happy Saturday, everyone! Woke up this morning to accomplish my first goal, that is, to accompany my husband for his regular blood examination. On our way to and from the laboratory, while my husband was driving, I was able to crochet 3 rosebuds--- yellow, orange and blue. Wow, I missed doing that for several weeks now, after the Christmas holidays! The truth is, I still owe a few friends the crocheted give aways intended for them. The back-to-work load in the office has been piling up faster than I could catch them, so I badly need a breather at home. That's precisely the reason why I've been posting only about food for several weeks now.

Now, rose garden here we go... my new batch of roses in different colors... inspired by the rose buds from Fiber Flux Luggage Blossoms which I featured in my post entitled, Rosebuds as Identifiers. In making the roses, I used the pattern from Free Craft Project .

I just added a lime green tail so that each rose bud can be tied in any bag. Just like these...

Aren't you falling in love with the roses? Why don't you start making your own garden too? It would make a nice gift for Valentine's day, don't you think so??!  :)
