Lovely idea, blog about embroidering on image printed on fabric. Also has a link to where to but the postcard images it uses. Love this look, such an old world feel. Nostalgic NeedleART: Ruched Ribbon Violets

I ❤ ribbon embroidery . . . Violet Gardens Brooch- This was one of two entries for the Piecework Magazine’s Excellence in Needlework 2009. The challenge was to make a brooch no larger than 3″, in any needle art category. I chose ribbon work here & silk ribbon embroidery for my other submission Elizabeth’s Garden. The base of the brooch is 18 gauge florist wire wrapped in cotton batting, then a silk bias ribbon. The brooch was fashioned into a spiral with two loops. ~By CHRISTEN BROWN
