First Rose

What a month. Nice weather, lots been outside, Sanne sick, and at last holidays. So now only an update of the First Rose. About time too. I think the hand is very beautiful looking. It shows that it is a high work. It is difficult to figure out what color the background you should not stitch. Of course I had when I bought it, do without any background. But I forgot. Since I have vacation now, and next week it is July 1st, there will still be a finger done, but that's all I think.
Sanne is recovering, just a pain setback yesterday. We just drive to the optician was. Her glasses were off balance. Still of the accident. And it hurt on her nose. Now she can see things right. Her embroidery is close at hand. I think that she have a couple of stitches to do.
Everybody has beautiful work. some are just stunning, the bee and the sunflower ! I love always the details of work. I know how much work the details are. Snow White and Gaudi, Gothic Rose, Dragon Fly and Good book, Dragon knot,Emerald Dragon, and many more !!!!  Good Job stitching Friends...

Oh I can imagine how difficult it is to remove the background of this one! You are doing a great job, she looks lovely so far. Best wished for Sanne's recovery.

Astrid,

I think that I have already told you that, but now with the hand, it's a clearness that you have chosen the perfect color of fabric for the background... Congratulations for your excellent choice, it's not always easy, and you managed it perfectly...

And concerning your work... I haven't got enough words to tell you how much you inspire me...
I was thinking about your first rose, and I know that you post an update around the end of the month... So, I was excited... And when I saw the result of your work, my eyes just couldn't stop starring at it...
The hand looks very delicate, and so real...
When you have a needle in your hand, it's a gift for all of us...
Thank you !

It looks great Astrid. The hand is so delicate!!! Glad you are having nice weather there! I'd bet taking out the background is difficult. You're managing well though. It's just beautiful! Hope Sanne is still doing well, and that her glasses are fitting better now!
