Roses are Red , Violets are Blue, if the snow doesn't stop I might go south too. My mother Nancy is off to warmer climates today, sounds like a good idea today with the snow still falling.
The photo above is another rose hooked by Nancy, the rose itself is very detailed # 3 cut with yellow , reddish tones and a little brownish red through the centre, size (18 X 16 1/2) hooking on Scottish Burlap; the leaves are shades of a green swatch darkest in the centre out to the lightest shade. This rug pattern could be easily turned into a cosy pillow. Below is the original pattern that has been used on several chair cushions.
