The white rose is dying … only a couple of petals left. I thought the crochet version of a dying rose will give you some ideas about what else you can do with a scrap of thread and a crochet hook. Trouble struck today and the backlight on my laptop is gone , photo processing was pretty though, I cannot see much, the screen is almost blank. Good side is… I'll need to buy a new laptop.
