I’ve wanted to learn ribbon embroidery for years.
Luckily, I didn’t have to look too far for inspiration. The wonderful Miss Ulla lent me some ribbons and her best books on ribbon embroidery. I’m hoping to have some time this weekend to work on some of the techniques in the books.
Look at this gorgeous ribbon work piece that Miss Ulla graciously let me photograph. It is a workman’s sampler that was found in Austria (I think).
The beautiful pink roses and silk embroidered blue bows make me swoon.
The tiny little sequins used to create the basket woven design intrigue me. I think even Marie herself would have adored this piece.
Wish me luck.
Have a beautiful weekend!
