A Favourite Technique


One of my favourite techniques is making silk paper. The other day I made some more so that I have a stock of it to dip into. This bag is made out of one of the pieces. The edging is ribbon I bought from Nostalgia who were at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate last year. Saving some of my pennies for the show this year. I have a long long list to stock up from some of my favourite suppliers who will be there. Can't wait!

Luscious colours Jan and I like the ribbon trim. Obviously 'Nostalgia' don't come down to Ally Pally which is a shame.

Thank you for your kind comments. It is a pity Nostalgia don't get down to Ally Pally. They have some lovely items. I know purchases can be made over the internet and by mail but I do like to be able to actually see and touch the ribbons. We embroiderers are so tactile!

That's such a lovely bag Jan. Beautiful colours and those ribbons along the top just finish it perfectly.
