Those are the stitches of the last four weeks:
- knotted buttonhole band,
- buttonhole bar,
- cable chain stitch,
- square boss stitch.
This rose is the first plant I ever planted in that garden, some 23 years ago. I don't remember its real name, but it has become Emilie's rose, probably because Emilie had helped choose it. (Emilie is my eldest daughter, she is now 25.). This is a strong plant, it has survived two transplantations and is still happy to bloom. The flowers are large and the scent is very nice.

My first post within the Green Tumb Sunday is a morning glory. This one deserves its name well as it caught me by surprise a couple of days ago as I was checking the garden before going to work. That kind of surprise makes the day brighter, doesn't it?
It is made of Vilene painted in yellow on the outside, with a purple batick for the inside. The embellishements are made of angelina fibers, painted and heated tyvek (recycled from envelops), painted scrim and some beads. The whole has been machine embroidered with variegated threads along the lines that appeared. It is closed by a cord, also machine embroidered, that goes through holes on the two extreme corners. You have to pull the cord to form and close the box. In fact, the box cannot close exactly this way, and I must add some holes on other corners. Promise, I'll do that this weekend !
Dear Passe Temps, you are right, I'm French, and lazy :-). Since most of my contacts speak English, I've decided to blog in English. But if you want more information in French, do not hesitate, you'll be welcome.
Caroline, I'm not brave, I just like to chat :-). I've seen so many wonderful art or gardens in other blogs, I've learnt so much from them that I want to give some feedback too.
Conni, I visit your blog often too, and your pics on flickr. Thanks for coming.
Take good care and have a wonderful evening!
