Beautiful - I can almost smell the fragrance.
I have a rose tapestry to do. I haven't started it yet. My eyesight for closework is not so good and I need patience to keep going with any sewing these days. I love to see other people's needlework though.
All the best for the new year!

That is so pretty! I love the smell of violets. My mom's favorite perfume when I was growing up was violet-scented, so violets always make me think of my mom.
