Roses is good, Barb - even if I wasn't married to one. They've been used on Family Crests, Flags and banners for ages not to mention belts, saddles, bridels,  and the such. Perhaps more manly than you think - oh, also on lables of some good libations from my younger memories.  :thumbsup:

Bet it looks nice. I've always thought that roses were one of god's most beautiful and intricate pieces of work. When we had our house on Atlantic beach (before going to Maine) I had 13 rose plants in our little lot - cars used to stop on the road to look at them in bloom. Only have three here and none do as well, as I don't devote the time to them now - too busy with archery LOL.

Barb,

Your quivers are awesome.  I like roses, and I keep telling my wife that I am in touch with my feminine side.  

Bernie's right about roses.  Apparently my family crest has four red roses on it, so I don't have a problem with that at all.  See the link:

  Clan History  

Besides, there was the "War of the Roses", " a rose by any other color...............", "The Yellow Rose of Texas", "Guns and Roses", and don't forget "Tokyo Rose".  Roses are a good thing.

I ordered some leather from Tandy this weekend, should be here Thursday.  I'm giving quiver building a shot, we will see how it goes.  I'll build a back quiver, and probably a stalker style quiver (the one with the hole in the side).  Wish me luck.

JAK,

Just take your time and you will do fine.    :scared:  I did win that battle of wills, but probably should have handled it a little differently.  I am going to get a tetanus shot this afternoon and let the doctor decide if I need stitches.    :(  He got me across my thumb and ripped the webbing between thumb and first finger (maybe I should have started him on that blood trail).  It won't seal up, so I may have to get a stitch or two.  We will be working this week on who is the alpha dog, and who is submissive.  Apparantly that lesson needs to be reinforced.

Hope you dont mind thought id share this,

If you wanta cheap and fuctional kids/youth quiver they are simple to make all you need is: ducktape,Popsicle sticks, Materal, Cardboard tube(such as from wrapping paper), spare peiace of cardboad for bottom.

ok first cut out a round peiace from your cardboard(spare peice) slightly bigger then your hole, using the ducktape tape to bottom(Dont be stingy on it:) ). Then cut the "quiver' to lenght, an exacto knife works good for this.
  Next take the popsicle sticks about 5 or 6 and a peice of duck tpae and lay them on the sticky side evenly space (you can use more but dont use any less of the sticks), id suggest using a solid row for the top and bottom as i find they take the most wear. Now wrap them around the cardboard tube, do this the whole lenght of the quiver, this is your "support" for the quiver.
 Next take matearl and make it so it fits around with a lil over hang. I usaly ducktapes it on(cusi loove duck tape   :D   ) or if you more adventeruse you can glue it on, i like to use 3 strands of ducktape top middle and bottom, if you want to you can sew the bottom up and "sleeave" it first. also place some tape on the top rim to cover both inside and outside of the rim to help protect the cardboard there.
 Attach rope or straps as you like ive done it from lakta style-cat quiver to even a hip. If you want you can coever the showing ducktape with apiece of materrl glued onn, though i havint tried that personaly. anywho just acheap quiver, i have used them many times and you can add lotsto them in cludinga pocket if diesered(sew onto the amtrail before you tape it in place0. Ok sorry for any typos i missed here, and GL!
