I am still working away on my small quilt for the Houston Silent Auction 2011. I have finished adding the ribbon embroidery and the beads and now it is starting to look finished.
I have used 4mm silk ribbon and most of them have been hand dyed so there is a slight variation in the colour. I think that it is not quite as flat looking as a plain silk ribbon.
I always use the Mill Hill small glass beads, I think it adds a bit of sparkle and light to the stitches.
Next I will be putting some borders on the little quilt and I'll decide if the border needs some embroidery as well.
Bye for now,
