It is really hard to come up with a project every day and I will just have made it under the wire today.   So I came home today and couldn't decide on something to make.  I played with ribbons and spent time looking at books.  But finally I decided to finish a project.  The project was a scissor case.  I had embroidered the case with silk ribbon spider roses and lavender sprays from brazilian threads.  Sometimes it seems harder to finish a project then to embroider one!  Here are the finished pictures.

Everyone should try ribbon embroidery!  It is very different from traditional embroidery because of the delicate ribbons.  Books by Di van Niekerk are really good to learn from.  It can just be hard to get the ribbons.  Several of Di van Niekerk's videos are on youtube.  So try, I'm sure the next thing you know you will be doing stumpwork dragonflies!
