Ribbon roses

I just had to try out one of my ribbons after supper and am happy with these roses. The size of this piece from one end of roses to the other in length is 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches high.  Now it’s time to go get horizontal and read for awhile. I’m done for the evening with this, have to give my hands and eyes a break.  Mark would like these. I was so happy making them, I just can’t explain it.  I was in here making happy noises, and I could almost hear him asking what I was up to, and I said, you’ll see in a minute. Just like always.

I am so thankful for the love and encouragement from Mark in so many areas of our life together.

those are lovely. The ribbon itself helps, but still you need the needle-skill and the concept in your mind, to bring the roses to glowing life!

Rainey, I so love your ribbon embroidery, I would love to see these pieces of yours framed in tiny antique frames.What a lovely collection it would make on a mantle or a dresser.
