Embroidery fun with Ribbon

Twirled Ribbon Roses, French Ribbon Knots, Spider Web Roses and Needleweaving Bars.  Been an age since I did these, forgot how relaxing and fun they are to do. The A-Z Embroidery Stitches book I bought for my daughter last Christmas and borrowed it back just to have a browse and saw the ribbon embroidery and felt I just had to have a wee play, and as I was making my granddaughter Poppy a few outfits for her doll I thought I would try it out on a top..... might add it took me for ever and I won't be in a hurry to do another, the top took minutes but I reckon it took me a good 4 hours off and on to finish the embroidery. Fun book and perfect for beginners through to advanced.
