When leaves are becoming flowers...
That is how someone characterized autumn, and to my oppinion this is the best definition!
Autumn is always in embroidery wishlist. It is fun to show its colours, flowers, wonderful landscapes and still life in silk ribbon and thread embroidery.
But that is how I found a gap in our Little Owl SmartCrafts ribbon embroidery kit collection: there are only three kits for silk ribbon embroidry there!!!
I found, it is rather difficult for me to start doing an autumn plot. Spring and summer abandon in flowers and colours, they come to us like a waterfall, just catch them into your palms. But autumn is different. It is calm, silent and thoughtful. Thus it demands a special mood to work out its icons.
Here I would like to show you an artwork of one person who was not afraid to start doing autumn designs. This is Barbara Wilson, Utah, USA.
"Several years ago I became acquainted with the art of ribbon embroidery but there were very few resources available. Recently, since retiring and with the advancement of the internet, I have been noticing many beautiful ribbon embroidery artworks and thinking that I would like to try developing this new hobby. I am particularly attracted to floral pieces. (I love everything related to nature – animals¸ plants, insects, birds, fish, etc). When I found the kits on sovushka.com, it seemed to be just what I was looking for, so I ordered some beginner kits. The first that I tried was “Autumn Waltz”. The materials and instructions were so complete. I enjoyed working on this project and I’m very happy with the results. I am anxious to continue working on with other projects. It is so fulfilling to be able to create such beautiful 3-dimensional artwork. "
Barbara participates our Lucky Ribbon embroidery contest. Wishing her good luck!
Wishing you all a bright splendid autumn mood
