When is a rose not a rose?

... when it looks like this of course;

While my dear hubby has been working nights this week, I have settled myself in front of the T.V with an ironing board perched next to me, my Clover mini-iron on hand and off I set.

It has taken me two evenings to get this far;

While I'm not exactly loving it yet, I am loving it a whole lot more than I did before.

The question is do I simply stop at the roses or should I 'stain glass' my leaves too?
