“Pink Roses in My Garden” for Gina

Hello to you! I hope you’ve had a beautiful week. It’s been pretty nice here in northern Illinois. Spring is well underway.

Last Friday I paid a visit to the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Springtime is so lovely at the gardens. Last year it was closed during the spring due to the pandemic. This year I, and many others, had the opportunity to see the daffodils, tulips, violas, buttercups, rhododendrons, and flowering trees of all kinds in bloom. I walked around the Landscape Garden to check on the status of my favorite–Convallaria majalis or lily of the valley. The plants were still mostly leaves with some little buds starting to emerge.

This past week I finished an ensemble for my Little Darling, Gina. Gina is enjoying her own floral wonders dressed in pink roses and a ‘light as air’ mohair embroidered cardigan.

If you’d like to see Gina’s ensemble in progress and also some scenes from my springtime visit to the Botanic Gardens you can watch my new YouTube video.

Wishing you a gorgeous weekend! What are you up to this weekend? I will be doing some sewing and creating. My Ann Estelle Sophie is next. Sending hugs! 🤗
