A busy May
Last weekend I took a workshop on Ribbon Embroidery. Pictured are the few flowers I made in class. We learned four different types of flowers and one type of leaf. Obviously there are lots of other possibilities but this was a good way to get introduced to the process and learn the basic knots and how to work with silk ribbons.
Then this past week I did a road trip to Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada for the WILU conference. As you can see from the photo there was still some snow on the peaks in New England on Tuesday. The conference was great - funny, entertaining and full of great content, tips and ideas.
