Red Roses and Tatting

My Red Rose Olympiad is blooming away and today got a little windy so I decided to go ahead and cut the open roses to enjoy indoors for a few days. Little did I know but I had enough for a pretty big size bouquet! It smells lovely too!
Ahh one of my favorite things are fragment red roses in a crystal vase on a lovely doily!
Another of my favorite things is tatting and how it drapes down your hand when tatting it, especially edgings. I just love the feel of it, makes me feel all lady-like and also to see it growing and the fact that I'm creating lace.

Lovely Tatting! I'm so jealous of your flowers tho! We're still getting snow (it's in tomorrow's forcast even though it's 78 degrees here!)

Your roses are beautiful and what a lovely arrangement they make. I feel the same way when I tat...so lady-like and graceful.

LOL, but not all of the time...sometimes tatting makes me feel pretty darn frustrated, too...LOL!

LOL I was really frustrated when I had to add thread for only 1 repeat so I can relate, but hey at least it worked out okay and each time I have to do it I get better. AND I'm grateful I didn't have any major issues like missing count or some-such! LOL

Hello Melissa,

Love your tatting on your shirt and your red roses are just truly gorgeous. I am still struggling with the tatting but I am not going to give up. VBG Hugs Judy
