Latest project

This is my latest project. It is the front panel for a tea cozy. I have used some old linen pieces and some lace and a doily for the background. Then I made some ribbon pansies, and some ribbon filler flowers, to make the nosegay on the right. Then I did some ribbon embroidery of pansies on the right bottom. On the upper left I did some rose buds with ribbon embroidery. I added some buttons and some semiprecious rose quarts beads. This is a close up, you can see a bit more of the detail.

I have been as slow as molasses in January doing this. I just can't seem to get my inspiration going. But I hope to have it done in the next week or so. I don't have a pattern so it is figure it out as I go, and I haven't been going much. TTFN

I've just discovered your beautiful blog. Your work is incredible. I haven't done any ribbon embroidery for quite sometime. I may have to dig out all my supplies and take it up again. hugs ~lynne~
