I ❤ needlepoint . . . Roses on the Water- Sharing my love of crazy quilting, silk ribbon embroidery, and beading. Needlepoint bag- I made this bag from a needlepoint pillow I've had for years. I hand-dyed and made my looped ribbon fringe with over a 100 yards of rayon ribbon. I've been asked if it was a commode cover! LOL . . .
Christian Dior - ‘May’ 1953 - In 'May', flowering grasses and wild clover are rendered in silk floss on organza. This patterning of meadow-gone-to-weed is composed of the tiniest French knots and the meticulously measured stitches of the hand embroiderer.
