Ribbon work….

I just love the start of a new project – it is filled with so much promise. My latest project was the Spring Needle Roll designed by Tanya Haines of ‘The Common Thread’. It is a ribbon work project, something I had never tried before.


The kit was lovely, full of beautiful, hand dyed silk ribbons and the instructions were very easy to follow. I was very surprised at how quickly the design is worked up. In fact it took just the one day to complete! The little project used simple stitches – French knots, lazy daisy and ribbon stitch.

I just love the colours – so fresh! In fact I enjoyed it so much that I have ordered another little kit!

Thank you for popping in, happy stitching. xxx
