Design Creation

Here is a very simple design for a Bluebell flower spray.
Using varying sizes of Ribbon Stitch.

( 4 mm and 7 mm. Silk ribbon )

First do the branch in Stem Stitch, add the flowers and then
place small straight stitches to connect to the stem.

With the knowledge of the SRE stitches and tutorials
where do you go from here   ?????

Create your own individual designs.

There are many avenues to look into here are
a few suggestions:


Links to many other sites.  Designs are endless.

Colouring In pages 

Clip Art


Greeting Cards

Flower arrangement magazines


Vintage Linen

Don't forget the most authentic and beautiful of all

Mother Nature.

( With the aid of your camera or phone you can
capture Natures inspiration on the spot)

Garden Visits 

Naturally, you may need to make some changes to the
design but this is all part of the fun. 

You may be surprised where your Muse will take you.

The number of followers is growing steadily towards
600, so I shall be putting my thinking cap on to 
come up with a Giveaway to Celebrate.

More news on this in the near future.

Happy Stitching

Embellishing Images using SRE


Running French Knot Combination


Once you have mastered the Stitch Tutorials and Flowers in my earlier Postings
your next thought might be in which way can I apply these flowers to my own projects.

I have quite a few years ago embroidered these bags, pouches etc. and thought
I would put the images online for my followers to see.

These are just basic stitching ( for the beginners ) and with experience can have
much more added using your own descretion and personal taste.

It is just a few samples of how a little added SRE can be so effective.
