Hello! Today I have some beautiful embroideries to show you by the talented ribbon embroiderer, Olga Smirnova, from St. Petersburg.

 

I had the great pleasure of spending time with Olga when I visited her beautiful city and I was so impressed with her work!

 

Olga kindly shared more of her beautiful work with us today.

Hope you enjoyed seeing Olga’s gorgeous embroideries.

 

Have a lovely week everybody. It’s COLD in Cape Town and the mountains not far from here are covered in snow. I don’t enjoy the cold as many of you know, but it’s wonderful opportunity to spend more time with my embroidery!

 

 

Love
