Crochet Rose and Leaves

I made a set of filet crochet curtain ties for my son's room. You'll find the instructions for making this curtain tie here.


Thought they were rather plain and I'd embellish them with some Irish roses. Here's the result.


 The rose has come out okay.  But it  looks too girlish an embellishment for a guy's room. Besides, it does not go well with the curtains or the curtain ties.  Another thing is, the petals are excellent dust collectors. I can't imagine what colour, the rose will become in a week's time. So, for now I am shelving this. Maybe I'll use it on a scarf or a muffler or a handbag.
