What are you most proud of? I love the 3 dimensional effect of the roses. I almost expect them to smell wonderful. hmmm...I may have to look for some wonderful rose scent to spray on them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would encourage anyone who can crochet to try thread. It is really easier than yarn and I use a larger hook size (size 1 Boyle hook or size B Aluminium hook) to encourage others to try it.

My mom had a napkin holder done like this. Both sides had the Irish crochet roses in varigated pinks, the spring-green leaves and the pure white background to fill the circle. The circls laced onto the napkin holder with ribbon. I used to love watching her starch and stretch the circles before lacing them onto the napkin holder. Thanks for the memory!
