All in all, very happy.
|Second Place Ribbon Won at ANG 2016 Seminar|
November 18, 2014--From January through April of this year, 2014, I participated in an ANG pilot stitch program and am finally able to write about this beautiful project. It's called Rose Swirls and is designed by Carol Algie Higginbotham. This is the first time I've done anything as a pilot stitcher online and thoroughly enjoyed the process. Of course, Carol's written instructions and photographs were wonderful and I had very few comments to make to assist Carol in preparing her final classroom instructions.
BTW, this is now an ANG Correspondence Course and can be found at this link.

I learned a number of new things doing this project--ribbon embroidery being one of them. I loved the petite ribbon roses and also used ribbon to make some of the french knots. Of course, the feather stitches were done in a random fashion which I'm not a big fan of, but they too came out well. Many of the white pulled work stitches inside the circle were new to me and again, had a lot of fun working them.
The last picture shows how this piece is framed.
