I'm still tossing around ideas for the blank red patch in the upper left and the blank pink patch in the lower right. I'm contemplating bead embroidery for the red patch and more of a dimensional embroidery for the pink one. I'm going to finish the silk ribbon embroidery bouquet in the lower left first and then figure out what would go best in the other 2 spots. I also just got my order of ribbon from Hand-Dyed Fibers and I have to say I'm a little disappointed! Two of the ribbons are way off color to the point that they are 2 completely different shades but they look the same like a third color! The 2 on the left are supposed to be the same color and the 2 on the right are supposed to be the same color with the outer ribbons the correct color and the middle two the messed up ones. From left to right the ribbon sizes are 7mm, 4mm, 7mm, 13mm. I understand about slight differences in dye lots and ribbon sizes but this is WAY off! I hate to say that too since I like her ribbon and prices! Also one of the sizes that is a messed up color was the size I was going to use! The good news is the messed up color actually works with my block! I'm grateful for that, but I had wanted the right shade. I'll be working on the bouquet next.
As always opinions and suggestions are welcome!
I love to hear feedback!
