A Promise of a New Beginning

In my post, A Rosy Adieu, I featured the rose I gave as farewell memento to Mae Ann. In that post, I said I will also feature the yellow rose I gave to Eleanor. This is it!

Here are the roses I crocheted for both Mae Ann and Eleanor. Pink-purple-blue for Mae Ann because her favorite color is pink and for Eleanor, yellow because it's her favorite color.
 See this? 
I'm so sorry, the rose is not very prominent in this view. Photo uploaded by Lea in FB.
  Here, take a closer look!

Oh yes, she already used her yellow rose identifier --- fastened on her luggage! I'm so glad it really served its purpose. :) Thank you, Fiber Flux for the idea and Apple Blossom Dreams for the pattern!

I confess, I never knew until now that yellow rose could mean any of the following: joy, gladness, friendship, delight, promise of a new beginning, remember me, jealousy, and "I care". Of all the meanings mentioned, I like "promise of a new beginning" best. Very timely and appropriate as Eleanor, the recipient of the rose, has just left for the U.S. And so, it is indeed a promise of a new beginning for her. In fact, I was so amused when I saw her post in Facebook where she said, "Buds beginning to bloom". How very appropriate, indeed!
Credits to Lea for the photo she uploaded in FB
I pray Eleanor will soon be able to adjust to her new world. Just as the budding tulips all show signs of life and growth, it is with much certainty that she will continue to live and grow gracefully and in prosperity where she is planted.

All of God's care and protection be upon you all the time, Lea! We will always cherish fond memories of you back here.

  1. That's a great idea, to use the rose as a luggage identifier. It looks so good. You are a kind an supportive friend.

    1. Thank you! I was so inspired at the idea after seeing the knitted flower identifiers of Fiber Flux that I looked for different patterns of roses and rose buds for this purpose. I'm so glad to know that many also like the idea. :) One reason why I like your pattern is because it doesn't require me to sew in order to anchor the bud aside from weaving off the ends, of course.

  5. That is such a good idea for a luggage identifier. It also matches her suitcase nicely.

  9. Oh what a lovely story. I knew the Yellow Rose meant something because I can hear the "yellow rose of texas" going on in the back of my mind. I think the song is sad so I'm glad you picked up on the Promise of a new beginning.

    Clever way of identifying luggage btw.
