Rose Garden Crunch

2 degrees at the garden this morning, crunchy white frost walked over with a beautiful blue sky.
It didn't feel that cold as there was no wind and the sun on our backs was a welcome relief to not being able to feel the tops of our fingers.

The last rose bud on the festoon weepers.

I was "dobbed in" to make a prize for the Rose Show in September. I had finished this blue wren cushion pattern and didn't know what to do with it. Our rose garden is full of wrens darting among the bushes. Spent the last 2 days finishing the cushion background to donate.


  1. Beautiful job on the blue wren!

    Minus 4 at our place this morning - you woulnd't have wanted to be out in that for too long.

  2. The frost on the lawn looks quite beautiful. I agree a lovely day despite the cold, minus 2 here.
    Great use for your version of the Blue Wren from our shared AQC class. I like the way you sneaked some roses into the background.

  3. I can't imagine what it must be like to be a pilot or air stewardess and regularly fly between the heat of Japan and the cold of Down Under. It has been so hot here recently I can not recall what frost is like. Soon enough we will have swapped weather, the wren will sing in your garden and we will need double woolen socks!
    The cushion is really charming.

  4. Beautiful cushion! Paper pieced? That always gives me headaches!
