I first want to apologize for my time away from adding blogs. We nearly had catastrophic engine failure in one of our cars due to a defect. Dealing with the car company warranty has taken most of my time. My calls for help being continually transferred to someones recorded voice mail message instead of the person promised, will fuel my nightmares for years. Enough said on the subject. We have all been there and I thank you for your patience.
The work continued on the last crazy quilt piece my children. I hope to have them framed when all three are done.
This section will be a spray of roses in variegated silk ribbon. I have made these roses before, and will use the older pictures for the instructions.
The next step is to add the pistil stitches in the direction you would like your rose to face. In this case the rose will face to the left and in an upward direction. Finish the by using the silk ribbon again. Begin layering over the pistil stitches to create the outer layer of rose petals.
Finish by adding your stems and leaves and your have a completed spray.
I hope to recreate our garden in an embroidery as a keepsake for your children. They loved finding the newest bud, bloom, or berry. The evenings as children picking fruit, veggies, and flowers when their father came home from work was a highlight. I hope these pieces will be a wonderful reminder of a their lives shared in the garden.
Next blog- topiary. Also don't forget to join in on the giveaway.
Until next time...
