My friend Judy sent me some lovely deep pink velvet ribbon in a parcel of goodies before Christmas, and i just want to show her what I have done with it. The ribbon was just perfect for a surround for this. I have pinned it onto some blue wool, and now it is ready to become a cover for a journal...if and when I will find the right size book. So I wanted Judy to see what I had used it for, and to show her ET as she had not seen it.
Some may remember this embroidery which I nicknamed ET....cant you just see the big "eyes" it turned out that way purely by accident. This cover is for a journal of some of the general embroideries I have done over the years.
I have also made a page from my buttonhole stitch sampler. I placed the sampler and the and the edgings diagonally on the page, and added some more samples of the buttonhole stitch. I also used some more of the threads that Judy sent me...see the golden yellow on the length of blue ribbon.
The blue edgings are from the stash of laces I received from my neighbour.
