June


The rugosa roses are abundant this year! Here's a pic of my granddaughter, Salena, helping me pick roses in the garden. We'll be making rose petal jelly, rose petal syrup, rose petal glycerite and rose petal vinegar. Perhaps a rose petal and rhubarb tart too! Roses are good medicine and food. Make sure you use organically grown roses.

I finally finished this crazy quilt wall hanging! The center portion has been done for some time. It's a combination of embroidery, beading and wired ribbon flowers. The borders are crazy quilted and include all sorts of embroidery techniques. All embroidery is by hand, of course!

Your wallhanging is drop dead gorgeous. Are you sure you wouldn’t like to adopt a sister?!? LOL. Rhubarb and roses? I was so proud because I just made my rhubarb and strawberry compote from the garden. Would you believe the first of our roses are just TODAY opening up?? It’s been a very cool, wet spring. Big hugs, Cathy
