Well the new term started again on Monday with two teacher days and then on Wednesday morning bright and early I was greeted by 22 freshly scrubbed, eager little boys. Another year has officially begun!
Today I would like to share probably the most favourite of all my silk ribbon cards with you.
It was made for some friends when they moved into their new home in a new country so I wanted it to be extra special.
The ribbon is thicker than the intended thread flowers of the original pattern so I re-inforced that portion of the back of the card with a piece of white cotton fabric.
Another version this time with punched paper flowers
and stitched as the original pattern was intended.
