This is a great. I havent made any of theses for some time .I couldnt remember what I did to start them out. I did 1 thing different in the second type than you and that was to use 2 colors of ric- rac.
I will post some pics when I get my own puter back from repairs. I have a loner for 2 weeks now and its driving me crazy. I cant even get to my blog cuz the filtering on it.
Hi Sharon, I’ve printed off the instructions to add to my TAST file. I’m not actually a quilter or embellisher but last year I went to an exhibition of Dorset Feather Stitching at Dorchester Museum in Dorset and I was intrigued by the use of ricrac in the exhibits. Ricrac for me has been firmly linked with primary school and my first efforts at stitching on binca so I’ve never used it since thinking of it as something for children and unsophisticated. The exhibition showed me how wrong I was and I went out and bought some and used it in a sketchbook cover. Your roses extends that use in yet another direction and I definitely intend to have a go. Thanks!
Thank you so much for breaking the process down into managable sections. My Aunt used to make the roses into earings, and I always liked their look. And this was before pierced earings came into favor.
I am definitely going to be using your instructions on some future projects. Thanks again.
