A Blue Rose on a Grey Day


Today, I finished this blue silk rose which I had promised to Carole’s daughter Shana. She had asked for a blue one after she saw the red one I had sent to Carole some months ago. It took me a while to get to it, with so much going on (largely getting ready for Silver Bella) in the past few months. But, I promised that once I returned, I would make it and today was the perfect day. I just love staying in and puttering around the house when it’s a grey day outside. The sun did come out for an hour or so, but luckily it went back behind the clouds again. I didn’t want anything to ruin my perfect “staying in” day!


Late this afternoon, I wrapped some holiday presents to get off in the mail tomorrow. Since Carole’s computer is down, I can safely post this envelope that I enclosed in the package going to her. I didn’t get to everything on my to-do list today, but I did get a lot done and it felt good. I also photographed the cutest cupcake today as well, which I will post this week. That baker at Whole Food Market just makes the most spectacular cupcakes. Not sure how it tasted as I didn’t eat it but you can be sure Miss Gracie got her licks in!

It's also a gray day here, but I am at work. Wish I could be home puttering around. I never get days to myself to just be, and do whatever! Your rose is lovely. Your calligraphy beautiful! Glad you are having a productive day! Blessings, :) Tammy

Hi Sharon,

What a pretty rose, and your calligraphy is lovely.
Carole will be really pleased.
What a good feeling having some of your Christmas gifts wrapped and to be able to tick off, your to do list.

Happy week
