Roses Are Red, And Yellow Too

Another food cover ( I'd better abandon teashower, since I can't find it in any dictionary). The rose is by Victats. I think it's very clean and modern, perfect for this project, and the pattern, called Roses are Red...,  is clear and easy to follow. Thanks Victats. I used size 20 thread for a rose in each corner and size 10 for one in the centre. The butterflies, (can you guess?) are Jane Eborall's very small SCMR butterfly. I did them in lilac to link with the dangley beads at each corner. The beads help to keep the cover in place. The edging was done on my sewing machine. I like the idea of combining machine embroidery and tatting.


  1. The roses are goergeous. I love this pattern.
    And your food cover looks wonderful.

    1. Thank you! I did contemplate adding your butterfly, but then I thought that might be too much. I'll use it on another cover. :-)

  2. Very creative, Jane! Lovely. I must look up those roses...
    Fox : )

  3. So beautiful roses!!!
    Yellow and red color is very lovely.
    I love it :)
