With the bad weather coming, I decided that I needed to finish my scarf that I had been crocheting for ages. But it looked rather plain and not very jolly!! So I embroidered these little red tulips using our NEW Hand Dyed Silk Ribbons. The ribbons are a delight to work with and so easy to make these tulips. Tony and I are off to Metz in France this evening, so this scarf will keep me extra warm.
I used the 7mm width to embroider the Tulips, just 3 simple ribbon stitches, for the leaves I used the 4mm width in green and 2 more ribbon stitches slightly longer then normal and a straight stitch for the stem. Very very easy - why not have a go.
We have snow in Dorset! We never have snow here!!!!!!
