Crochet and Roses

Two 6" blocks finished for my BAMCAL blanket.


And that is all I can show you of my stitching week!
Other 'things' are being made but I still can't show those at the moment.

I've been doing a fair bit of gardening earlier this week, and here is a lovely bunch of roses trying to peer in my lounge window. 



I'm so glad I took this photo a couple of days ago because we have just had about 48 hours of strong winds and heavy rain, and these poor flowers do not look like this any more.

  2. Lovely roses......I could almost smell their heady scent. Your BAMs are very pretty too.

  3. Your roses are pretty. I like your orange free form; it's like an orange blossom.

  4. I'm so glad you took a picture of your roses, too! They are beautiful. While we've had a weird, but very welcome balmy weekend here in Indiana, we're a long ways from seeing roses bloom. Your squares are pretty, too, Cyra!

    1. Thanks Becki. It's summer time over here and we should be having long hot days instead of this wet stuff.

    1. Not enough hours in the days, or days in the week.

  6. The roses are beautiful. I am glad you caught their moment in time. I swear I can smell them which is inspiring as I sit in my little rain forest!

  7. Those roses look like they're the old fashioned ones that have such a wonderful scent....my favourites. Too bad about the wind and rain destroying them.
