long stemmed and beautiful. I admired these roses at work when we first unpacked them, but I never would've guessed that I would get to take them home for free. When all the unsold stock that wouldn't keep was being cleaned out, I was offered the chance to choose whatever discarded flowers I wanted. These were my first choice.
I got home and had to go looking for a vase (I've been using mason jars for the tulips, but long stemmed roses need something more dignified ;o). Most of our household is still packed up in moving boxes (yeah, I know. it's been 8 months and counting living out of boxes). Lucky I made a list of what items are packed in my boxes! It didn't take long for me to find a vase for my roses.
Now, as for any sewing news to share... here's one project I'm hoping to get to this weekend. This quilt top has been on my to-do list, but between needing batting for it, starting work outside the home and everyday life... well, I'm obviously not done. I had been using the floor of the second kitchen (we don't use this kitchen) as the area for basting my quilts. Turns out we now need this space (more on that in another post), so I came home from work yesterday to find my husband's solution for keeping my quilt top out of harm's way. Smart man to know I wouldn't be impressed to have my quilt top walked upon. ;o)
Wishing you all a wonderful, creative weekend!
