Token of Friendship - Rose Pincushion & Egg Candle

Hi, it's been a while since I finished to make something. It's small though, I'm satisfied with it.
I wanted to stitch and make something for my new friend A. in return as she gave me Birthday present.
I heard that she doesn't do sewing etc..., though I made a pincushion with rose design.
I added lots of lavender in it, and stitched on 40ct linen with DMC#310.
Unfortunately when I took these photos, my camera had many of Sweetie's finger prints on the lens, so the photos are not clear at all, though...
But I'm now happy that I found why the camera had been something wrong.

And I added velveteen lace ribbon around the wooden cup, isn't it nice?!
I have the same wooden cup and want to make the same one in the near future.

And also I made and added someself made egg candle and presented to A., too.
It's very easy to make, and it's so lovely!
If you would like to know how to make it, I would take photos of how to make, later!
It makes me so warm while it's lighting.
Here is the photo that the candle is lighting, photo below!

Recently when I pick up Sweetie, Sweetie doesn't want to come home soon, so I have to wait more than an hour at the Preschool.
But it's so nice to have mama friends! So while kids are playing, we are chatting a lot!

Here are some photos of my mini-roses that I bought at first sight love!
All my potted mini-roses wothered and died before, so this time I care of them very much, hope they last long!

Thanks for your visit, and take care!

Happy Stitching!
