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,
