This week, in the gallery, I have been preparing for
Yorkshire Day, on Thursday 1st August.
Decided I would make a Yorkshire Rose and thought it
would look best in crochet (see below)
I was pleased with the result but then there was the problem
of how to display it.
Mounted it onto a piece of vintage fabric and embroidered
'A Yorkshire Rose' in chain stitch. Especially pleased with
the hanger. I made a rouleau in matching fabric with a
pale blue vintage lace edge and secured it with 1930's
buttons. Never tried that before but very satisfied with
I felt the piece was too floppy so finished it off by backing it
with white felt and slightly stuffing it.
Et voila .... A Yorkshire Rose is born!
