While there are no flowers in my outside garden, I am continuing to recreate them out of silk ribbon. I just finished making this flower sampler – the photograph below didn’t turn out very well, but was the best of the bunch.
I drew different flowerpots and flowers on the Irish linen square (30cm or 12 inch square) and embroidered each smaller square using hand-dyed variegated silk ribbon. I love working with silk ribbon. The colours are vibrant and the silk feels lovely.
I wrote a post in March here showing some silk ribbon works that I did quite a while ago. This piece hangs in my living room, although I had originally made it to hold watercolour supplies.
And soon, I will off watching the Grey Cup game between the Saskatchewan Riders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Go Riders!
