Cabbage Roses ...

Hello my dear friends,

this is another one of those "late" posts I told you about a little while ago.

The creations I am sharing with all of you today were made at least 6 months ago. They have been sitting in my studio on a shelf, just waiting for me to get my camera out and capture them in a few pictures to finally share with all of you.

Some of the things I love to work with are old pocket watch casings and sari silk ribbon. They are both just so beautiful. In the past I have made some neat and lovely things with both of them on their own but I haven't done anything with them together like this as far as I can remember. I came up with this idea/design after seeing photographs of the most beautiful cabbage roses. I was so inspired that I just had to make something and today I am sharing that something.

I am sharing my two newest pincushions ... my cabbage roses!

The first rose I named "Rosa"...
(... it is German for pink.)

... and the second rose is called "Flieder".
( ... it is German for lilac ... (flee-der).)


I just love making these roses and I am buzzed with my newest creations.

 They turned out exactly the way I hoped they would. You will be able to find them for sale in my Etsy shop tomorrow morning, if any of you might be interested. I am already working on something new again which I will hopefully share soon here on Todolwen, so why not visit me again some time and see what I have been up too.

Thank you for taking the time and stopping by today. It is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
