Well, this rose bush was hers. It was planted by her at my childhood home, where my family still lives. About 10 years ago my mother's husband sprayed weed killer around all of her roses. Well not just the weeds died! Almost all her roses did too. She planted some with my father years ago. Some were from my grandma and grandpa when they lived there.
Two years ago this one popped up! A surprise to us all. My mother wanted me to have it, since it was one from my grandma. Brian dug it up and it lives here with us now. It is still rather small, but alive! It is more than 50 years old.

I began stitching another poodle freebie last night. I intended to make another magnet of it. We will see. I am not always the best at figuring out finished sizes of things. Not great at eyeballing it. Even though I am stitching this little girl on 45 count, it may not fit my bottlecap finish I would like to keep using for the poodles. This is my first time stitching on 45 ct and I like it. I am using my magnifier.
Stitching and praying,
