SRE = Silk Ribbon Embroidery
A few years back I was taking classes at the West Jordon Stitching Corner (sad they are now out of business). One of the classes I took was to improve my silk ribbon embroidery. This class was taught by Esther Randell, and here you see one of her designs. She used to be the owner of YLI (the founder actually). I like this; I just have never figured out what to do with it. I think if I made it into a pillow it might get wrecked, stitches pulled and the like. It will probably be framed in the future. I have this idea of a pale pink, yellow, and green guest room some day (with pink as an accent color not a main). Who knows, I may start liking pink if it is in a guest room, because I wouldn't have to be in there every day and it would be a change of pace. There are three different sizes of silk ribbon used and a few different thread weights of silk denier. This piece measures fourteen inches square.
I like to share on this space my ideas and projects.
Please don't take ideas or photo and claim them as your work.
