“Blue Skies for my Roses”

Along with Gracie, Patience had a modeling gig yesterday.  (I’ll show you Gracie later.)  Yes, we had sunshine and our family room was nice and bright, perfect for picture taking.

We also had frost yesterday morning!  What!!!  Hey, it’s mid May, Mother Nature, you’ve got your months mixed up!  Hopefully, she will come to her senses soon.

Anyway, back to Patience and her new ensemble.  I called this ensemble “Blue Skies for my Roses” because sunny, blue skies is what our roses need to bloom gloriously and that is what this fabric reminds me of.

All of the color in the dress made the embroidery fun to do too; I think I used 7 different colors of floss.  Patience’s tiny sweater is knit with merino lace weight wool.  The peachy/ivory glass bead buttons are the perfect tone for this sweater; they blend with the light yellow/peach rosebuds.

I used various flower buds in pastel warm pink, glass pearls, and Delica beads to decorate Patience’s floral headband in an asymmetrical composition.  The flower buds and beads are all neatly sewn and secured onto the headband.  The headband ties at the back of Patience’s neck.

The bouquet and bracelet are equally colorful in pinks and neutrals.  Streamers of pastel sky blue silk ribbon float around the flower stems.
