Here is my new creation, I didn't stictch for a very long time so it's very great joy I did this challenge.

The design is French Vintage (reassemble a bit, otherwise it was too large).

I used silk ribbons, wool, silk thead on linen. You can see more pictures on my blog. There the explanations are in French but if you do need them in English, please do tell me.

Very pretty.  I love all the textures.

Quite lovely! I have done this style embroidery before, too! Not exactly on linen. I think I used a cotton base, but this looks wonderful! And for members who have never tried to embroider with silk thread, or silk ribbons...give it a go! They are a smooth move! I recommend this for everyone who is learning to embroider. Nooooo tangles!

You have done a wonderful job. And I love your colors. And I don't mind a bit about the scale of things. I like the larger flowers. Who says they always have to be tiny? With the strong colors you have, they look good in this size.


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

Such great texture! Those French knots are lovely, too. This is beautiful. You say you did this for a little pocket? What was it for?

Truly beautiful stitching. I love how the flower petals curl at the ends.

The colours are just so pretty, fresh and joyful
I wish I was less timid when it comes to colour choices

Thanks a lot for the compliments !

Actually, I made it to put make up or accessories. But it doesn't fit, I'm afraid it was not the best option.
So when I'll have time I'll transform it into an earring-holder, one that you can open and close with a small latch, and with hooks to put the earrings.

@stillatthetop : you right, ribbons are great for beginners, stitching goes so quick with them.

@dollbecky : before I was like you, and since I studied Indian Embroidery, zardosi, I dare more with colours. And to see how it will go before to stitch, I visualise my colour Wheel and see where they stand.
Now I always chose my colours before, and check them as I go along.... to really convey what I mean to.

Don't know if it's really clear.
