INTERNATIONAL HERMIT STITCHERS WEEKEND STITCHING!

I almost got it done! Have 2 and 1/8 roses left to backstitch.
Forgot to take a before picture. This weekend I stitched all the green and three colors of darker pink on the roses. And finished back stitching five of them. Didn't quite get all of the roses in the picture...
 Here is a beautiful gift sent from my friend Christine K and her grand daughter Gracie. I love the hand written thank you card from Gracie. I have plans for this bag and already have it set up, waiting for the decorations.
 
After running errands I decided to update with my bag!


 I have a rainbow!! Sun shining through a fish aquarium. Now! Where's my pot of gold????
After new years I bought three amaryillis bulbs that needed a good home. They were about to rot in their packages. Bought them home about 2 1/2 weeks ago, planted two in the pot kits that came with them. The last one was planted in a container with marbles and water. Here is the results. We could lit\terally watch them grow!

 That is for this update!
Thanks for stopping by!

Deb your roses are coming along very nice. Looks like a big project I am sure there will be a "I'm Finished!!!!" Dance when it's done. Your flowers are growing beautifully. And what a beautiful gift from Christine and her granddaughter.

I love the random placement of your roses on the afghan. This year I didn't get any amaryllis bulbs as they seemed very small here. But yours are doing brilliantly. Have you ever managed to get them to reflower? I can't! Can't wait for my Gracie bag to arrive and see what it's like. They are really pretty and so nice of Christine to post them all over the world to us.
