  3. The roses are soooo cute. How did you make them??

  4. Hi May… theyre not actually hard at all. Just winding the ric rac around in an ever bigger spiral, twisting the ric rac as you go and securing with stitches underneath. There will be photographic instructions in the pattern that Im currently working on. It will be called A Thankful Heart : )

    Hi Melissa, What a fantastic idea – your roses look absolutely gorgeous! I love using ric rac to embelish my projects, your design adds a whole new dimension to that thought. Where do you get the varigated ric rac from though, I’ve never seen that before? I am really enjoying my waterlily dreaming needle keep pattern too, thanks so much for that!!

  10. Hi Karen,

    The ric rac is from the range created by Cottage Garden Threads.

    http://cottagegardenthreads.typepad.com/ There is a stockist list on their blog.

    I know that the full range is available from The Patchwork Teahouse. http://www.thepatchworkteahouse.com/index.php?page=1act=viewCatcatId=11 .

    To order from The Teahouse, select your colours from the Cottage Garden Threads site before giving The Teahouse a call.

    I hope this helps. I would love to see your finished needle keep : )
