Thank you all for your lovely comments on my lightbox :)
it's interesting to read what you all think about using one,
I haven't got round to using it yet but will :)
This week I've been practising my silk ribbon flowers, I didn't want to go rushing in to make a picture before I know what I'm doing so I thought it best to make some crazy patchwork blocks to practise on, it seemed a shame to do some practise flowers and then throw them away! and silk ribbon is pretty expensive!
So the blocks are ideal, although I've never done this before either
I'm learning two things here, how to do crazy patchwork and silk ribbon embroidery!
The roses I didn't make but the lavender and daisy are my first practise pieces
and I get to keep them :)
I added lots of bits and pieces, buttons and bows as crazy patchwork is anything goes :)
that suits me
and the finished piece.. a bit wonky but I did it :))
hope you all have a lovely new week
and of course....
Happy Stitching :)
