"What do Dolphins and a "Ballerina" have in common?"


Hello,

You may be wondering what Dolphins have in common with Ballerina's. Please read on.


Back in January I purchased this piece of material which is just over four metres for a $1.00 from the Good Sammy's on there $1.00 Linen Days. Some of this is currently being used for backing on a quilt I am hand quilting.

"Ballerina Rose"

This is the "Ballerina" rose that is flowering in the garden at the moment. A stunning Hybrid Musk rose with large sprays of small single pink blooms with white centres. It has tiny orange-red hips in Autumn. First produced in 1937.

The answer of course is "They both make me Happy!!!!!"

What is making you happy in your part of the world today?

Happy Monday
Bev C

Fun looking fabric and that is one beautiful cluster of roses there. I hope you can show the hips on a post. Rose hips are beautiful in floral arrangements. Have a wonderful day Bev.

What a great find in that fabric. It's always the little things that make us happy.
My grandson makes me happy - I wish I had more grandchildren.
Sewing (or knitting) something for someone also makes me happy.

That fabric is so cool! I love the movement the dolphins give it. And those roses are so beautiful. All making me happy today! Spring has arrived here, so I am happy to see everything coming back to life in your yard and gardens.
