When I was at the height of my passion for silk ribbon embroidery I did not have a digital camera and only have old style photos of my earlier work. A lot has been given away, or sold, but I have a few pics of some of it. The photos below are but the tip of the iceberg.
To say I was hooked is an understatement, and if I had the money I have spent on silk ribbon today, I would be substantially better off but would not have enjoyed the thrill of working with the medium.. knowing me though I probably would have spent it on threads or linen
So enjoy my photos on this Down Memory Lane Monday.

There more more samples of how I have used silk ribbon embroidery in my reef pictures as well. In fact silk ribbon is a medium that lends itself to a myriad of uses. If you want to see some wonderful silk ribbon embroidery and tutorials visit Carol Daisy on her blog here
I will leave with a photo of my silk ribbon stash....and yes I know I need my fingers smacked....promise I will get round to tidying them up.
