Soul Food #83~
Sewing mends the soul. ~Author Unknown
A little like gardening..reading and baking~
I had saved an old Martha Stewart magazine..I went through it and ripped out the instructions for ribbon embroidery..
I have finished making all the needlepoinnt stockings for our family....and when I saw this I thought it might be fun..You combine your floss or wool with ribbon..and you are on your way..
I have just begun..and it's so pleasant~
You can make preserve covers..
and even journal covers..the little possibilities are endless.
I think I need more ribbon:)
I think it would be fun to add jewels etc..
I must get Googling to learn more..
I think many of you would like doing this if you have not tried already..as I said this magazine is not new:)
I loved crewel work as a young mom..filled our home with the projects..then needlepoint..thanks to Jain..
these are quick little projects that are easy to personalize.
It would be nice on old linen..old napkins etc..
I used aida cloth.
Had to buy a new ring..where or where are my loved old ones?:(
Only heaven knows at this point~
