Last Roses...


These are the last roses of summer...I'll miss them when they're gone! The first is a Queen Elizabeth rose and the second is a Rio Samba, which is my favorite. The buds are yellow with red edges, they open up to yellow and red, then fade to this soft pink with yellow. At any time the bush will have yellow, red and pink roses...it's just beautiful! Nothing quilty has happened in my house this week. I emptied my son's large bedroom, painted it sage green and moved my 11 year old daughter into it and out of her "babyish" room. Then I painted her old room a cream color (although I did leave her blue ceiling with the sponged clouds on it...I just couldn't paint over it!) and moved my son's things in there. I put 2 beds in it, just in case he wants to bring a friend home from college. Both rooms turned out very nicely, although now I have to make 2 quilts for my son's room instead of one! I'm hoping to finish cleaning up from painting, etc., make a quick cleaning run through the house and get started on those quilts later today. I've cut 2" strips for log cabin quilts so they should go pretty quickly...I hope!

Aren't they just perfect? Maybe it's because they are the last ones of the year? And the colors are so intense! Thanks for sharing. Our roses are all gone!

Wow, you made me realize how much I miss my roses.

Have you ever had a Double Delight? They are so fragrant. They are a cream rose that turns bright, hot pink where the sun touches the petals.

Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Your quilts are wonderful, too.
