Spring Blooms

Idle hands…not something they will find me guilty of.  Finished another silk ribbon embroidery project.  This one is a spring bouquet.  The larger pink blooms were done using the ribbon stitch.  Running stitches and colonial knots were used to construct the purple flowers as well as the yellow ones.  Ribbon stitches were used to create the green leaves and a scatterig of yellow french knots added the finishing touches.

             

This blouse was a joy to work on.  Each time I complete a project, I realize that it is never a carbon copy of the original pattern.  I seem to individualize each project.  Doing so, just enhances to my sense of satisfaction.
