Peacock Finish-silk ribbon embroidery






Hi all and a warm welcome to even more newcomers :) its lovely to see all the different blogs and interests, hope you all enjoyed blog hopping as much as I did :)

Well, onto the peacock and he's done! it was a very enjoyable if some what frustrating experience, not the silk ribbon embroidery but the fact I ran out of the green silk just at the end for the leaves!!
Ohhhh NO not after all that hard work! so I had to improvise :))
I had a bit of blue silk ribbon left over so I made a smaller blue flower to put over the 4 leaves that would have been unfinished!





apart from running out of ribbon at the end I found it a wonderful experience and will be pursuing this art as one of my many crafts, my list grows longer every year!!
LOL
next on the list to do is take this to my framer for framing and buy some silk ribbons ready for my next Silk Ribbon Adventure :))
Thank you for reading
and
Happy Stitching:)

  6. Your peacock is amazing!! How gorgeous does he look strutting around in all that glory! Running out of a certain colour ribbon near the end is always a pain, but as you have done, it always seems to work out...even better than what you originally planned. This is a spectacular finish Summer!!
