I don’t have many roses blooming on my three rosebushes (I may have deadheaded them too vigorously) right now, so it’s a good thing they are blooming on Patience’s dress. I really am not good with roses. *sigh* 😦
Anyway, on a brighter note, Patience is here to relieve your rose withdrawal (if you, like me, have any).
Patience’s tiny sweater is hand knit with the finest lace weight yarn I have in my stash, a blend of baby alpaca and silk. The embroidered bouquet on Patience’s sweater is “tied” with a silk ribbon embroidered bow. Her sweater buttons are glass pearls.
Silk ribbons also decorate the waistline of Patience’s dress.
I quickly took the photo below during the golden hour, just before sundown. I noticed how beautiful the light was getting and wanted to capture it. I literally had minutes before it got too dark.
Patience’s bracelet is part of her crocheted clutch purse. It really opens and closes and can hold a tiny treasure. Her pearl headband is crocheted with the same pink cotton as used for her clutch.
Patience’s “Summertime Roses” ensemble will be available tonight (July 27, 2016) at 7:00pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com. You can check the “Shop What’s New” page at that time for more details.
Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses today! 🙂
