So, last week my mom brought me a book that her friend lent to me on silk ribbon embroidery. The book itself called, non-surprisingly, The Art of Silk Ribbon Embroidery is pretty, but definitely dated, as it was published in 1993. (it was a lot of faux Victorian/English country in it. Which can be good or bad) Anyway, I am seized with a fire for ribbon embroidery! The only drawback is that it seems incredibly difficult. I read some the stitch instructions and it was like a foreign language. Ah well, you know I'll try it anyway! Here are some pics from Flickr fiend Norehan--who has quite the dab hand at the embroidery. Anyway, if anyone has tried it, let me know--I want to be prepared if there is disaster ahead!
