Hooray! I accomplished the “rose” for today’s post. 🙂
The weather has been a bit crazy lately…rain and cold, like the start of Spring days, and then heating up to Summer temps! I am still running outside for a bit to work, then when the rain starts, I run back into the house. I still feel like I am living a “cuckoo clock” life!!!!!!! …lol…
But…I did get some hooking done…and the rose was fun to do! For those who say they “can’t draw”…for the rose I just cut some paper in a rather angled circle, drew around it on the backing and then added a wavy line around it all. Then, I just drew a rather “squared off” spiral for the center and hooked it in 3 colours! That did not take much talent on my part…!!!!! 🙂 And now that the rose is done, those lower “flowers” look even goofier than they did before!!!!!! (they look a little drunk)
Now I realize that the “bud” does not look like it will turn into a rose of that colour (!!!) but that, as they say, is another matter altogether!!!!!
Not being a “real” gardener, I don’t know if this is a floribunda or a grandiflora or a hybrid tea rose (well, really a padula!!!!!) but I DO know I did not put any thorns on it. I am the owner of a garden where some of the roses have been here for a long time. They are beautiful and some of them have a heavenly fragrance, but they have large and wicked thorns. The scratches on my hands and arms attest to that…!!! Even when I put on gloves, the thorns catch me somewhere. (Roses are sneaky) 🙂
So here is Progress on Day 4…Happy Hooking! (and watch out for roses!!!!!) Sunnie 🙂
