Thankfully yet sadly we have had no snow this winter. And even stranger we have had virtually no rain. So I realized with all this great weather I better prune my roses back before the snow comes and flattens them to the ground. Behold this is my reward! A beautiful Heritage rose that smells amazing. Thank you mother nature for this gorgeous flower I so admire and enjoy.
And here is my winter rose rendition made of delicious wools and lace. I used four wools all in grey tones including a plaid. The lace was added to soften and add feminity to this piece. One of my favorite vintage buttons for the center finishes it off perfectly. A pin back makes it easy to wear on a coat or blazer or tote bag.
This is how I presented it to my friend. She really liked it and had the perfect grey plaid jacket to adorn with this rose.
I continue to love making my gifts I give as it really keeps me in total thoughts of that special person I am creating something for.
As I post this I can hear my wool fabrics pieces calling me to create with them. I love the feel of wool and how easy it is to work with. It adds a wonderful richness to the finished piece.
Do you create with wool fabric? What do you like to make with it?
Blissful creating in this fresh new year 2012...
