3 roses at the corner

Salaams and Hello to all my friends and readers,

In my humble opinion, it's not really difficult to learn about ribbon embroidery, tapi bila bab design nie memang susah. A lot of factors need to be considered such as type of flowers, type of fabric and colors, color combo, bunga-bunga yang act as pelakon tambahan pun tak boleh sembarangan sebab nanti nampak janggal dan merosakkan design. Makanya..terhasillah bunga yang sangat simple ini..

I am still in the learning process and those roses using umirose technique. I had sewn the same design at four corners of the pillow. For those who are interested to learn RE with kak umi , you can find details about RE classes from her blog.

Thanks for viewing and till next entry, take care and happy stitching!

Orange Tree

Salaams and Hello Everyone,

How is your craft activities?. I hope all of you enjoy your craft activities as much as I did. Back to my orange tree story. I once read this, A researcher says -- An orange a day can keep a heart disease away, so do take an orange a day to stay healthy *smile*. My orange tree had also helped to keep my stress away..*wink*. I had done the wooden beads covering with silk ribbon few months back but I could not finished the whole design as I don't have wire to make the tree trunk -- and when I stopped, it will take sometime for me to resume..hehehe..

Since I am not in the mood to do cross stitching and looking at the chart even make me more 'pening', I decided to do something 'light and easy'. I walked 5 minutes to the nearest LNS, bought a pack of wire and start to make a tree trunk and overcast with variegated perle cotton no 8..

I then worked on the basket with woven filling stitch using variation perle cotton no 8, adding forget-me-knots flower and leaves...

Walla..a completed Orange Tree and forget-me-knots design from panel 10, Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork by Di Van Nierk.

Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Square of Blue

Salaams and Hello Everyone !

After almost 2 months, I am back with my needle, thread and fabric story..*wink*. Many things had happen in just two months..some are good news and some are sad news...hurmmmmm..that's is life is all about.

Above is a mini project from the book titled Beginner's Guide to Hardanger - Jill Carter. This project use a hardanger basic techniques which I am familiar with but some stitches are new to me such as reversed diagonal fagotting ..(sound technical right? *sigh*). I have to unpick few times due to miss counting the number of thread...however when you had mastered the technique and familiar with the fabric that you are working on, it's going to be fun and I enjoyed doing this piece very much.
Till next entry, have a wonderful day ahead and take care. Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a sweet notes. I appreciate it very much !. XOXO
