The parcel has arrived today and I am sooooooooooo happy! I finally have the books even with a personal dedication from you. That is great! I am so proud and happy! And I can´t wait to start all the projects. My husband immediately liked the Orange tree in the “Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork” book and I guess I will start with this one.

 

I am familiar with stumpwork techniques as I participated in 2 stumpwork classes in London, Hampton Court Palace, at the Royal School of Needlework and the Embroiderer´s Guild a while ago.

 

I also practised some medieval Goldwork when I copied a 15th century embroidery of a chasuble……with many, many tiny stitches in couching techniques with golden thread and needle painting with silk thread.

I am new to silk ribbon embroidery but also practised some smaller flowers and now want to learn more from your books… (see the pictures…these were presents which I have created for the guests of my birthday party)

Let me also thank you for the gifts which you have added! Again, I am so excited and happy!

 

I wrote to Dagmar to tell her how impressed I was with her gorgeous pieces and to ask her if I could share her beautiful gifts with all of you and she replied:

 

“Thanks a lot for your compliments for my work. These were my first steps and projects with silk ribbon embroidery. I am excited to now climb the next level 🙂

  

I have visited your Facebook site already and I am looking forward check out networking and get inspired by what others create…

It´s a pity you are so far away. I would love to participate in some workshops.

 

It´s a lovely sunny day today here in Germany and I will go out now enjoy late summer sunshine…

This evening I will plan my next project from your Roses book……or the orange tree…???  :-)….

 

Best regards,

Dagmar”
