Hearts and Roses

Good morning fellow crafters ~ I thought I’d show my latest two creations.

Hearts are a symbol of love and roses are an ancient symbol of love and beauty. They are two of my favorite things. I have a collection of hearts made from various materials, and in my cottage gardens I also grow roses.  I love their scents, colors and forms.

In my needlework, I enjoy creating them and here are my two latest pieces. They are made with felt, silk ribbon and embroidery floss.  The silk ribbons are colored with alcohol ink markers.





I’m just learning to embroider with silk ribbons and enjoy it very much. Using the alcohol ink marking pens is nice too as I don’t have to have all colors of ribbons, just white in 3 sizes.  Can any of you tell me where I can get 5/8” organza ribbon and also places to buy silk ribbon? I bought the ribbon I have from Thread Art.

Very good videos online for ribbon embroidery are by Crafty Attic.  I would buy from her but she accepts PayPal only. You will enjoy her videos.

That’s it for now.

Happy Creating whatever your medium ~ FlowerLady
