Little finishes

I decided to get these little embroideries finished and framed up. I learnt an other valuable lesson, well two really and they are both lessons that I know already.
1) Don't use little scraps of fabric when doing embroideries, because you can't frame them properly.
I know this but persist in trying to save fabric. Then you are stilted in what you can do with them.
2) Take your embroideries out of the frame when you put it away for the night. Yet again, I know this, but did I do it, No!!!

Oh Judith! These are the most exquisite embroideries; honestly, you have such talent with silk ribbon. Did you do the framing yourself? How did you do the matting? Oh I wish I lived closer so I could take lessons from you.

Gorgeous Judith. You accomplish what we all strive for in our silk embroidery!

Judith - I am back home and catching up with everyone. I so enjoy all your beautiful work! Your flowers are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen! Really, really, really.
They match your spirit girlfriend :-)

Much love,
