Spring Blooms And New Civil War Pincushions...


Oh Spring, where are you ???
We are having a sunny, 
but very cold, blustery day.




Sweet little "unknown" flowers in the gardens.
Probably weeds, but they have perfect tiny flowers.




I treasure my Harry Lauders Walking Stick
because the limbs can be used in many projects.
These are the catkins from the 
'Red' Harry Lauders Walking Stick.
Loving the texture and rusty red color !
(Even the buds are red)

I love to do Hand Embroidery...
I couldn't resist adding it to a pincushion.
I used gorgeous Valdani variegated Perle Cotton Thread
for the Hand Embroidery.  Love the richness and 
all the variation of color in each of the roses.
Beads and crystals will come next !

Sweet Tender Violets

Violets always remind me of my Grandmother 
and her Grandmother...generations past.
I can remember collecting large handfuls
and placing them in a vase for my Grandmother.

Enjoy your weekend !
Rose

  1. They are lovely even the flowers that you said are probably weeds. :) I would love to have that Henry Lauders Walking stick. I love even the buds and catkins.
    You are having so much fun I can tell. The pin cushions are so pretty. I love the colors. I hope it warms up soon for you.

  2. Hi Rose - Great plants and flowers in your yard - I love the twisty one! Your new pincushions are awesome - the bright green on the black and white one is very striking and the embroidery stitches add a lot of interest to some of them! You've been busy!
