Isn't he going to be lovely. This is from BHG American Patchwork and Quilting Issue Dec 1999.
Next was silk ribbon embroidery with Judith Baker Montano. If I liked this type of look I would hop to her studio for a class. She just seemed like such a wonderful and patient teacher. I enjoyed the silk ribbon in small quantities! So a small embellishment project perhaps would be fun.
Maybe I would feel differently if I had
a) a proper needle
b) non cheap silk ribbon
c) proper size of silk ribbon
But I enjoyed the lesson nonetheless.
Next on the project list was watercoloring a background to use with silk ribbon or crazy quilting. Let's just say that not ALL of us should take up watercoloring on paper or fabric. As my paint was either clumping on my fabric ( not enough water) or running in a stream through my fabric (too much water perhaps?) I remembered that I was never good at watercolors at any time in my life. So my sample will get tucked away never to see the light again.
This was great fun! Happy stitching!
