What was your inspiration?
I love Roses and are always so sorry to see them die. I also love rainbows. I have suncatchers all through my south windows so I can have rainbows all winter long on my inside walls. I decides to combine these two loves.
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.
