Day of Roses

Yesterday it was the Day of Roses at the Botanical Garden. There was guided walks in the Rose Garden and lectures for everyone that is interested in gardening in general and roses in particular.



The Swedish Embroiderers Guild was invited to participate. We had a small display with embroideries with roses and some information about the guild.





Here are three pieces I made for this event. It's a bit of an experiment actually. I used paper napkins with roses on them and bondaweb. The napkins where fused on to linen fabric. Then I stitched bugs and ladybirds.













Have a great week!

The stitched napkins are great fun and very effective. It's something I keep meaning to try.
