silk ribbon emboidery

All it took was a Saturday morning gathered around a dining room table with a few ladies, an array of silk ribbon in beautiful shades of pink and green, and an intended project for creating a thumb pin cushion. 

I came home and after finishing my pin cushion(see in right hand corner), I went online and ordered a book and some spools of silk ribbon. Now I am accumulating my own stash for future projects. A new love of hand sewing has been birthed.

I've not tried silk ribbon embroidery but have admired it. I hope you continue to explore and enjoy this new craft Cathy.
My son's wedding is this Saturday - just in time for a quick honeymoon before they both return for lectures at the beginning of a new academic year. See my first post in November "Another Sister" for more details. :)
