silk ribbon embroidery...

From the moment I saw the first silk ribbon embroidery items I was hooked.
I wanted to learn how to do it, how to make all kinds of roses, I love roses. 
 After reading about it, looking at tons of pictures, trying out different 
techniques for coloring the ribbons, believing I could do it, 
 even though I have never been a big fan of embroidery, 
my first silk ribbon embroidery items are ready!!  

my silk ribbon embroidery turned into these (beautiful) pillows
by a very talented professional seamstress..

silk ribbon roses & linen..

soon to be someone's heart...? 

(I hope to be able to sell these items in my web-shop, opening soon!?)

thank you for stopping by...
