Ribbon Embroidery Pillow


This is my first ebay listing in over five months...

I did a lot of ribbon embroidery while away...it is an art that I think is lovely and very rewarding to do!
This piece was worked on a pretty Mary Rose fabric with roses, roses, roses....

I followed the design adding ribbon posies among the little roses....there is a vintage rhinestone flower shaped button....four different hanky points on the front with sweet lace, two are tatted....two more vintage hanky points on the back....
This little darling has a very French feel with the soft pinks and greens and the beautiful blue....

We are having such a quiet, nice Sunday....the birds are chirping, the sun is out with big fluffy clouds...maybe a thunderstorm later?...people are mowing their lawns and I am loving padding around the house in my BARE FEET!

Wishing you sunshine and happiness....

Jil, Your pillow is so pretty. Your ribbon embroidery is something that I have never tried to do. I always have projects with me when we travel. With the rain we had while we were gone I got quite a bit done. I worked in the yard and I was thankful it was cloudy. I got a little windburn, but at least the yard looks somewhat better if we get the rain. Have a wonderful day. Your Missouri Friend.
