Caroldaisy.blogspot.com has been Online since June 2009
For almost 10 years I have been blogging through my Silk Ribbon Embroidery Blogspot as Carol Daisy,
where I have received visitors from all over the world.
This has been wonderful, but I do not get to meet anyone and wonder if I am giving assistance
and encouragement to you all.
I am issuing an Invitation to join me on my Pinterest Group Board, to display your work and SRE you have
been able to achieve.
This is not a competition of showing the best embroidery efforts, more so as encouragement for others,
no matter your age, ability or experience.
I am of the firm belief that Embroidery, Crafts, Sewing, knitting etc. can be a therapy for
Anxiety, Depression and Loneliness. ( I state that from personal experience )
Using your Creative side can be so relaxing and rewarding, along with the fact that we are
keeping these crafts alive, and all share a common bond with our love of Craft.
This is not the end of the Silk Ribbon Embroidery Blog, more so a new beginning, there will be
more postings in the future including Video Tutorials, Free Designs and Stitches.
Apple Blossom is a fairy,
Swinging in a tree so airy
By and by the little sprite
Sprinkles the ground with pink and white.
Step 1: Creating a pattern from the lampshade.
Take a large enough piece of paper, and using the seam on the shade as the
starting and finishing point roll the lampshade frame over the paper,
whilst marking the edge on the paper.
Allow at least a 20 mm seam allowance
on all edges.
Step 2: Cut one piece of calico from the template just created.
This is the base for the Crazy Quilting.
Other option draw the template onto the calico
and cut out once the Crazy Quilting has been completed.
I have centred this project around the Satin Image of Apple Blossom.
Using fabrics in Dupioni Silk to complete the image.
Also the addition of Hand Dyed Laces to Enhance the Seams.
Put together a selection of threads, beads, motifs silk ribbons sequins and other embellishments
to compliment your fabrics. I have taken the theme as a fantasy theme owing to the fact that the
image is from a children's storybook by Elizabeth Gordon.
This has influenced the items I will be adding to this Quilting and allows me to delve into
a whimsical world in the Garden.
At this stage I am adding SRE to compliment some of the Saveechi Pottery Buttons.
Work still in progress. !!!!!!
