ROSE ORNAMENT

This is a Blackbird Designs, Rose Garden, project. I stitched this past 2 weeks. I had some pretty varigated DMC #5 perle cotton. Couldn't figure out what to do with and really wanted to get it out of my stash and used. One of those things that kind of stares at you until its used..... Matched thread up with a scrap of 28 count pale yellow fabric. Did not think I wold get a good result with ribbon and the sewing machine. Ended up sewing by hand, adding lace, 2 colors of nylon ribbon(pink and yellow) and quilt batting for padding. The ornament is a little bigger, at 6 x 8, by the time I had it sewed together.
