  17. Just one more stitch to go. I'm going to take it to the post office this weekend to see what's involved in mailing it. Pics to come.

  18. I totally changed my gift as it was to my expectations. So I am now busy to think what to make now. But the ornament is going perfect. And by stitching it I also got a new idea for the gift.

  19. I love visiting open gardens... they can be so inspiring... that rose might be a 'Pierre De Ronsard' my friend has them lining her driveway and they are stunning....

  22. Sheryl is right it is a 'Pierre De Ronsard'. I have 2 growing in my garden. I know a blogger who had posted some gorgeous pics of them last spring I have sent her an email to see if she can confirm the roses name. Have a happy day

  24. Hello again Chooky, gosh 2 comments in 2 days thats a first for me. Have checked with my blogger and got confirmation that the rose is "Pierre de Ronsard" it also comes in red. This lady lives in Melbourne and she gets 100's of flowers on her rose in spring it is a site to behold when in full flower. Sadly I cant find the actual post otherwise I would give you the link.

  26. Hi

    I think the rose is called Pierre De Ronsand - not sure about my spelling. It's a David Austin rose. :)
