I have been looking through some of the things I have made in the past few years. It is really amazing to consider how much time I have spent and how many techniques I have tried.
The blanket was one I made just for the practice: the background is wool and the embroidery is silk ribbon and stranded cotton. The design is my own.
The piece on the right is the detail of a cushion. The pleated ribbon flowers are made from gathered mokuba ribbon. the roses are worked in silk ribbon.
The two pieces of silk are some that my husband gave me recently. They are "pocket handkerchiefs" which came with ties. I am not sure how to use them but I am thinking of a book cover for him. The brown piece was part of a gift from his long departed grandmother. I would like to make something that he can use.
