Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers for the passing of my grandmother. Sometimes all you need is to hear someone else say, " I understand.", to heal.
The rose bud was from Ruth Perry and can be found here, the Tat Calendar. It's the tea rose. I didn't think of her because, well quite frankly, when I hear her name I think celtic. Like this lovely Stargazer Lily.
Now I'm off to work on rose #2, this one being Kim's Forever Roses. I'll most likely make the majority in this style with different colors.
