Floral Heart

I had my last Creative Embroidery class with Sophie on Monday, I have really enjoyed the six week course and have signed up for the follow up in September. I have learned so much from her and am really pleased with my first attempts at silk ribbon embroidery and goldwork. My head is already full of ideas for my next piece :)

Silk Ribbon is so lovely to work with, I can see another collection starting :)
It comes in the most luscious hand dyed colours...

I also really enjoyed Goldwork, although this looks more like a drunk beetle than a spider :p
Instead of framing this piece, I made it into a lavender filled heart to hand on the linen cupboard door

  1. I love the silk ribbon embroidery! it is so pretty. I really need to spend time learning this and the regular embroidery - I know how to do some stitches but haven't done a lot.
