Finding favor: Pink Roses...



My Pink Roses pattern found its way to Spoonflower’s Latest Favorites page yesterday, which is always cool. I captured a screen shot of some of the others also chosen, which you can see below. It’s interesting to see what captures people's fancy.
I created this pattern a couple of years ago from a photograph I took. I cropped in on the rose, added a painting effect, and then changed the colors, edges, etc.




I created this pattern in two colors - the dark pink and purple of Pink Roses and another version in pale pinks, which I named Pale Pink Roses. You can see that version below ~ it pairs really nice with one of my stripe patterns. You can find these and other patterns on Spoonflower.



Wishing everyone a lovely day...

Easter Fun...


With Easter fast approaching (and now here for this year), I was inspired to create a new pattern. Featuring cheerful chicks and brightly colored eggs, it really is a bit of fun. The design is now available on Spoonflower, if you’re interested in getting started on next year’s Easter projects. Click here to view it.
Wishing everyone who celebrates a Happy Easter...

Taking refuge from the cold...



Spring has retreated for a couple of days where I live ~ it feels like November outside with temperatures not making it out of the 40s. My hibiscus plant, being tropical, naturally doesn’t care for cold weather. It got down into the 30s last night and is supposed to dip into the 20s tonight, so my hibiscus is taking refuge in my living room for a couple of days. Its peachy pink blooms are so glorious, despite the cold, that I thought I would share.


Wishing all of you a lovely day...
