I'm back, finally!

Hi, friends, how are you all doing? I hope you are all well and having a good day. I know I've been away for way too long, I've missed you all. The last thing I posted was about the juniour bridesmaids' night dresses I was making. I'm glad to say that I ended up finishing them two weeks before the wedding, which was a relief. I included a little snippet of a photo here to show you one of the dresses. I ended up doing A-line dresses instead of pleated round the waist simply because the style suited better. The sash was a satin ribbon. The fabric flower brooches were white when I bought them, I couldn't find the right size and right look in that light mauve colour, so I decided to paint them myself, seeing that those white ones were just right in shape and size. I simply used an acrylic craft paint and it worked fine. I don't know what it will do if I wash it, but it hasn't needed a wash yet, and the wedding is over now. Oh, talking about the wedding, it was a beautiful wedding, we had a great time.No, I don't have any roses now because we are in the middle of winter and they have all been pruned. But these were the roses I put in jars ready to give to my friends a while back. I just thought I'd share them with you. Have a wonderful weekend, my dear friends.

Nice to see you back in blogland.
Cute dress and what a great idea to paint the rose.
Soon Spring will be upon us and your roses will once more be blooming and as gorgeous as ever

Oh my I love your blog! I am a fanatic about the kinds of roses you love! I used to have 2 1/2 acres an hour outside of Las Vegas where I had over 200 rose bushes. How I miss those days.
Your blog is out of this world. I couldn't help but smile when I pulled up your page. I just wanted to dive into the computer and come visit you for a spell!
