Hi Folks ~ Here it is feeling like summer already, being in the air-conditioning feels wonderful. I try to work in gardens in the mornings, needlework whenever I feel like it, here in my little creative space.
Here are my latest creations. I crocheted the flower and the butterfly. There is silk ribbon embroidery, beads, old lace, fresh water pearls.
This is my first attempt at a pincushion.
Silk ribbon embroidery and I used alcohol ink markers to color the ribbon.
I am new to silk ribbon embroidery too and am thoroughly enjoying it.
I didn’t stuff it enough.
When I showed my friend and fellow needle worker and told her I realized I didn’t stuff it enough she told me I have to ‘overstuff’.
Next time I will.
I added a crocheted edging.
Here you can tell it wasn’t stuffed enough.
I love creating hearts.
I loved and was loved and hearts are an expression of love. I miss showing my dear husband my creations. He was my encourager, my love.
This photo was in different lighting than the one taken below.
This piece below was made for a widow friend for her birthday. White silk ribbon embroidered then colored with the alcohol ink markers.
The embroidered part is 2 3/4 inches high by 4 1/4 inches wide.
I love creating. As you can tell, all but the framed piece are works in progress as I’ve not decided yet what to do with them.
Happy creating to you whatever your medium.
