I am adapting a design from Helen Eriksson book - Ribbon Renaissance called The Winter Rose Cushion. The challenging part for me is the colour selection. I need to carefully select a right ribbon colour that stands out on this dark color fabric - maroon. As Kaye Pyke said in her "Elegant Embroidery Book" - Dont be afraid of colour! Experiment !. I am using 3/8 offray ribbon for the folded roses and satin ribbon for the leaves. More flowers to add in and the most tedious parts is the french knots - really testing my patience. For the french knots I am plan to use 6 strand of DMC variation.

My target is to finish it by end of this month as a gift to my long best friend. I am going to sew it into mini cushion. Gud luck to me..*wink*.

As requested by adik manis, here is my first ever box pleat curtain. I had made a few mistakes here and there but still happy for able to finish it. Jangan gelak tawww...senget sikit tepi tuh...but I am learning..*grin*. The flower fabric (ke base fabric?..blurr sikit subuh2 nie..hiks) is from elyza and I had difficult time in finding the plain matching fabric. I had been browsing all fabric shops in Jalan TAR and unable to find the soft pink that I want. This pink is my last resort. .*wink*.
Thank you for visiting and Selamat Menjalani Ibadah Puasa, Moga amalan kita diberkati.
