Rose 3

Oops, here's the third rose. I don't know why I forgot to post it. It's Kim's Forever Roses, but just the first group making a rose bud not the full flower. And I also need to make the calyax for it. I think I should invest in a styrofoam cone to start placing these as they are made before they get lost or given away. I used size 20 Lizabeth Dark Plum thread and a hat pin rather than floral wire. It was eadier to use the curved tip to gather and hold the petals by the bottom picots this way.


  1. The color is gorgeous and rich! I like the pattern too.

  2. A topiary...mmmm...Thanks for the idea, Diane. And Thanks for sharing Michelle and Margaret. I love hearing from you ladies. ^_^
