Many moons have passed yet again
many moons have passed yet again and I promised back a while to put up the sketch showing the way I do my foundation spikes for "my" version of "spider web roses". Having checked my comments today I noticed that poor darling Kerry is waiting with baited breath oh heavens Kerry are you still breathing my love?? Breathe Kerry Breathe, please keep on breathing ROFLOL!
Now as you can see I am the worlds worst drawer BUT I hope you can see how and what I do-- its such a slight change but it does make all the difference! Also dont be frightened to use wider ribbons then the normal 4mm, that you will read in most Patterns these days- try wide as in 12 mm or 15mm rayon they are glorious the Mokuba Rayon Ribbon has such a sheen and it all adds to the roses beauty I have even used 20mm ribbons it can be done theres no rules in CQ and it should also apply to the making of spider web roses just because we have made them this set way doesnt mean we cant do this or that and who knows you may write to me and say you have found an even better way of doing them Go for it - Are you breathing again Kerry I do hope so I would hate to think I lost you after you waited so long for me to show the sketch - you can see why now cant you?? ggg Best of luck let me know if you make them and if your happy with this way or another show me your pictures please I love to test things out and so should we all ---that's how our beautiful embroideries get better isn't it??
love n biggest hugs bear xoxoxoxoxoxoxox
PS Kerry you are breathing arent you?? gggg
