Welcome lovely peeps 🙂
Despite not doing much embroidery I do like it, it’s one of those skills I’d like to develop – just not necessarily today 😉
At the moment I particularly like ribbon embroidery and lucky for me one of my bloggy pals – Lin from St Victor Quilts – is a bit of an expert at it. Go and have a little look at her blog and you’ll see some of her beautiful work.
Lin recommended a beginner’s book to get me started and this week I’ve given it a little go.
Now I know that for the best results you should use silk ribbon but I didn’t want to go to all that expense while I was learning so I used voile ribbon which at 15p a metre is much more affordable and I wont get too cross when I make mistakes!
Here are my humble efforts
Ribbon stitch flowers in purple and blue
Straight stitch and French knot flower in purple – it should be a rose but I’m not quite sure what happened!!
Hmm, now what to make so that I can cover it with pretty flowers – that’s the question 🙂
I’m linking this up to Fiona’s ‘New to me in November’ post on her blog Celtic Thistle Stitches.
Until next time,
