Today my eldest son and his lovley M are going to be married.

July 24 and the day we have been preparing for a long time.
I made the ring cushion in silk fabrics and bead embroidery.The circle reminds us of the the country they are
living in now but also the north of Sweden where we live and summer days with nearly no darkness.Today the sun is really shining here both in the sky but also in our hearts.We wish the young couple a happy life together.

Ribbon embroidery

On a blog
I found the SAL in ribbon embroidery and I decided to follow her instruktions.All is in swedish but you can see the pictures showing different steps.What was really new for me was the japanese stich for the leaves.I used silk fabric and the ribbons in the kit are azlon ribbons ,really nice to use.The roses are in spiderstitches and the knots are french knots made with 3 strands of varigated DMC.

What a great start of a new day to do ribbon embroidery.
