Valentine´s Day and GG. post

I wanted to publish this yesterday and wish everyone a Happy Valentine´s day but I had internet problems and couldn´t publish my post.  With help from my technician all is ok today and I can join in with the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.

For Valentine´s Day, I thought I would stitch something really romantic and emblematic and what could be more so than a notepaper holder? .... no? ... well maybe not, but at least my little cardboard holder looks prettier now with a few amateurishly styled ribbon roses.




The pink Mokuba ribbon was gifted to me, so making this embroidery valid for the GG SAL and I wanted to do the roses in varous shades of pink but this ribbon is very hard to find where I live and the colour choice practically non existant, so I had to use what was available and that was  beige and white.



I started with doing a bit of trellis stitch using DMC thread and then ventured on with the roses.



I embroidered some tiny pink buds with floss which would have looked better done with the ribbon...too late now.



See you next week,
Sheryl

  23. Very elegant, as allways. Thoses roses aren't so easy to make, very risky work I think, trellis and assembly make a perfect finish. xxx
