Kazuko Aoki - "Rose is a Rose" finished!

I've just finished Kazuko Aoki's design, "薔薇はバラ色" (= Rose is a Rose?).
I stitched the same design for two, one is for myself and one is for my mum.
It was so fun stitch, I really became liking stitch her designs so much!

This real pink roses are from my mum's garden, actually they were blooming beautifully at neighbours garden.
Last year we were talking about them, and then an old man who own these floweres in his garden gave us some sprays of this rose!
This year they bloomed in my mum's garden, beautiful, aren't they?!

The ground area, there was written to double cross stitch, but I didn't get it, so I just have done normal cross stitch!

Thank you so much for joining my Giveaway, and thanks for lovely comments for winners!
Margaret, Rowyn, I will send your pinkeeps in a few days!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Happy stitching.

Design : Book "バラと暮らす" ("Bara to kurasu") by Kazuko Aoki
