Fabric and silk ribbons

I have been having fun dyeing fabric as backgrounds for silk ribbon embroidery. We have finished dyeing nearly 1200 metres of silk ribbon and now I want to start using some of it. Most of it will be for sale but I have earmarked some of it for myself!

This is a small notebook cover that I embroidered using small pieces of left over ribbon. I love the browny green ribbon!  Below is an embroidered coathanger in silk which I made for a friend. 

And I have finally finished the Bird Sampler. This is the latest in our line of cut out adhesive shapes for appliqué. It was great fun to do. Not the best picture unfortunately!
