Modern Embroidery project,' Winter'

This is a project I did for Alchemy 2013, my theme, seasons, this one is winter.

Close up, silk yo-yos, beads, netting, silver trim, hand embroidery.

 I took Karen Ruane's Alchemy 2013 online class and this was one of the projects. Her classes are always so worthwhile and full of encouragement plus lots of support. I'm not being paid to say this, it's just true that's all.
I was doing a little review looking for ideas and I came across this and said "Aha!"
I remember doing the roleaux for the first time, kind of like giving birth to your first child, "Is this really going to work?"
It does work and turns out lovely.

Closer still, silk roleaux on the right.

  2. What a beautiful winter bouquet! The roleaux are so impressive.

  3. I need to make some more roleaux loops for my current project...will have to re-visit Karen's lesson. Really wish I'd taken part in the Alchemy class too.

  4. Oh I do love Winter Janie, it's a stunning piece of work....and thank you....I will pay you later lol!
