Beginning A Bouquet

I've started working on the July Little Extra for the CyberStitchers meeting.  It's a silk ribbon embroidery project that is a bit freeform.

From Blue to Color Blasted

This picture shows how I sent off my silk ribbon embroidery round robin block.  It was all blue, and I didn't specify any particular theme for it.

And here is how I got it back.  It's a carnival of color and gorgeous!  I was so surprised at how they made a blue block pop so much.  Thank you Arlene, Candji, Diane and Susan for doing such wonderful work on my block!  I love it.

Silk Ribbon and Temari

I participated in an exchange for spring on the Talk Temari board.  It had to be floral and springy, and I wasn't getting any inspiration from geometry, so... I decided to branch out.  I took out my silk ribbons and embroidered the ball all over.  I might do it differently next time, as I feel there are some places more blank than others, but I like the overall effect.  I added some glass and plastic beads too.  The recipient in Sweden is very happy with it, so I can now share it here.

Lacy Finish

I made this pillow for an exchange. It's been sent out, but it's going to Europe, so I'm sure it's in the backlog of mail from the volcano. Anyway, I finished this silk ribbon heart into a pillow with some huge lace I fould. I think it came out pretty well and I hope she likes it when she gets it.

Finished with a Ribbon on Top

The top picture was taken on Friday last. The other two were taken last Saturday. As you can see, I finished it rather quickly. That's the big reward of silk ribbon embroidery: it goes quick. I learned some about stitching with silk from the course. Really not pleased with the color choices, but ... that wasn't the point of me signing up. I've got some confidence in this technique and will probably start using it in some of my projects, especially ones where I want a quick lift.

A New Ribbon Start

I finally began my project from a class that started in the middle of February. It's from Vickie Brown of Ribbonsmyth. The first lesson of the class was all talk and no do, so I kind of tuned it out. I went back to it last week and finally started. Lessons one and two are done on this, and I hope to do lesson three later today. Silk ribbon embroidery is a new thing to me, so hopefully I'll learn quite a bit doing this.
