Roses everywhere!

Roses just make me smile.   I get to walk out my front door every day right now and smell them.  The arbor is covered and both sides of the driveway are surrounded in a variety of pinks!

I  also just looked around and realized how many fabrics I have collected have roses on them!  This dress that I just listed is in citrus colors, but the Kaffe Fassett fabric of the apron is brilliant orange and rasberry pinks.

A different mood entirely for me from these roses

 This peachy color is soothing and sweet for me.  I found this beautiful shabby chic roses fabric at an awesome fabric yard sale!!!!  
 This is the front of the apron dress I created with it.  The apron is Cicely Mary Barker's vintage flower fairy fabric that I had remnants of in my stash!  Love the pink velvet rick rack too!!!
  I found out this week that I have to have shoulder surgery, on my right arm!!  It is happening in August, so I am putting out my fall items now on my etsy store.  JUST CLICK ON MY LINK TO IT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BLOG PAGE.  PreOrders are great if you want fall items since I won't be able to sew for about a month after surgery...I can make them now though!
